Restaurants, Bars & Clubs

Protect Your Business’s Assets & Rep

Owning a restaurant, bar, or club can be an extremely rewarding line of work. It is also one which requires serious legal preparations.

At Schilleci & Tortorici, we often find that many business owners are so eager to begin working on their dream establishments that they often overlook a good number of the potential consequences. These consequences aren’t always predictable or preventable, and they can include:

  • Fights
  • Lawsuits for sexual harassment
  • Lawsuits for assault
  • Customers slipping or falling
  • Any number of accidents caused by drunken or reckless behavior

As such, it is important to make sure that your bases are covered in the event of an incident, which, unfortunately, is likely something you’ll eventually face.

Jody Schilleci and Jason Tortorici have made a career out of working with the owners and operators of bars, nightclubs, concert venues, and restaurants. From the world-famous Viper Room to local neighborhood clubs and pubs, we have the experience to help you protect your image, no matter how big or small you may be. Our team routinely handles disputes that arise from:

  • Third-party misconduct
  • Inadequate security
  • Hazardous conditions
  • Contractual, copyright and trademark claims

If you’re planning to start a business, don’t wait for disaster to strike. The correct foundation and structure of your business is an essential part of ensuring that your brand’s assets and reputation remain secured and in good standing. You’ve worked too hard to lose everything over something that could have been avoided by making a simple phone call, so contact Schilleci & Tortorici to learn more today.
