Cole Schotz Formalizes Restaurant & Hospitality Group

February 21, 2017Attorneys: David A. Rubenstein and Jordan A. Fisch

NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2017 - Cole Schotz P.C. announces the formal launch of its Restaurant & Hospitality Group led by New York-based members Jordan A. Fisch and David A. Rubenstein. The Group brings together a multidisciplinary team of attorneys drawn from the firm's Corporate, Real Estate, Tax, Employment and Intellectual Property practice groups to provide counsel at every stage of the business lifecycle.

"We've been counseling entrepreneurs, restaurant groups, celebrity chefs, craft brewers, and hotel owners for years," said Mr. Fisch, co-chair of the firm's Corporate Department and a member of the Real Estate Department. "Creating a Restaurant & Hospitality Group is a natural progression for us and a focused, strategic benefit for our clients.

"Starting and growing a business in this space is complicated, and we're here to simplify things and help our clients focus on what they do best – pursue their passion."

To help clients achieve success, Cole Schotz regularly advises restaurant and hospitality businesses on many of the challenges they face, including selecting an optimal location, generating start-up capital and partner or employee disputes.

"The restaurant and hospitality industry is known for its high failure for new ventures," said Mr. Rubenstein, member of the firm's Real Estate Department who has a national practice. "Our hope is that through the application of experience and creative thinking, we can help our clients anticipate and respond to challenges and opportunities, and thrive."

The new group will provide a comprehensive range of services, including corporate structuring and governance, raising capital and investor relations, commercial credit and finance, acquisitions, franchising and tax planning, among others. It will cater to national and international clients in markets where the firm has offices.
