To serve the hospitality and gaming industry, law firms must have a strong multi-disciplinary team approach that focuses on the myriad of legal issues that surround this industry.
Kilpatrick Townsend’s experience in serving the hospitality and gaming industry is nationally known. We serve as counsel to some of the largest hotel, gaming and mixed-use development projects in real estate, finance, corporate, government relations and lobbying, tax, mergers & acquisitions and construction projects.
We have been recognized throughout the country on our union avoidance and employment efforts with Native American tribal casinos. A Kilpatrick Townsend partner, Keith Harper, leads the Native American practice and is a key member of our Hospitality & Gaming industry team.
In addition to having the legal experience to serve this industry, the business knowledge of the industry is critically important to successful legal outcomes.
