Hospitality

OUR LEGAL KNOWLEDGE, AT YOUR SERVICE

For nearly 40 years, Ball Janik LLP has represented hospitality clients with legal needs ranging from real estate, construction, acquisitions and development, contract disputes, insurance, employment, financing, and bankruptcy and reorganization. We have successfully prosecuted and defended claims for our hospitality clients, including well-known national hotel brands, resorts, luxury boutique hotels, sports and entertainment venues, and restaurants.

As an established and respected real estate law firm in the Pacific Northwest, we have cultivated relationships at the highest levels. We are equipped to assist with governmental regulatory matters, including zoning, licensing, and environmental disputes. We are also vastly experienced in advising mixed-use resort owners, including those featuring condominiums and timeshares, and advising boards and associations on a variety of needs.

Our attorneys represented the Washington State Public Stadium Authority in the $430 million financing, development, construction and leasing of Qwest Field and Event Center, a multipurpose public stadium and concert facility that is home to the Seattle Seahawks. More recently, we successfully prosecuted and resolved breach of contract and oppression claims in Oregon and New York courts involving the Ace Hotel Group. We are currently litigating business interruption claims for multiple hospitality clients. 

We are dedicated to remaining steadfast to the ever-changing needs of clients in the hospitality industry. By leveraging our knowledge and breadth of capabilities, we successfully guide owners, developers, and property managers on the myriad of issues that arise over a property’s or portfolio’s lifetime. We are proud members of ARDA, the American Resort Development Association, and through our involvement, strive to cultivate high-level knowledge for those involved in the industry.

Our team endeavors to provide tailored legal services and to surpass client expectations. We are results-driven counselors and litigators with a focus on guiding clients on everything from risks to prospects in this rapidly evolving industry.
