Hospitality Risk Management

It's hard to get closer to the hub of hospitality than having offices in one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. So it's no coincidence that Grower Ketcham has built up a subsantial hospitality litigation and risk management practice.

The omnipresent tourist culture in Central Florida and our proximity to thousands of hotels, attractions and restaurants combined with our deep experience in all facets of defense litigation make us uniquely suited to represent restaurants, hotels, theme parks and resorts as well as the convention center and other governmental venues which cater to public events. Our relevant experience includes defense in claims of negligent security and guest injuries, labor and wage claims for hospitality management, rental car company liability, personal injury claims arising out of premises liability claims, aviation accidents and a multitude of transportation issues.

Additionally, we are well-versed in defending clients in the areas of food safety, product liability and third-party claims, including the ever-present slip-and-fall liability issues the hospitality industry faces. Our hospitality risk management team frequently presents to and speaks before tourism-related industry groups, including the Central Florida Hotel and Motel Association and the National Golf Course Owner's Association.

Our legal services also include:

Automobile accidents
Aviation law and personal injury
Franchiser and franchisee liability
Golf course owner and operator liability
Insurance coverage disputes
Premises liability defense
Purchase and sale agreements
