Our legal team also handles a significant number of liquor license liability and dram shop matters. The majority of states in the U.S. have adopted dram shop statutes which address the liability of establishments that sell or serve alcoholic beverages. Our lawyers are familiar with how these laws are applied in the states where we practice and work closely with our clients to develop solid defense strategies when these statutes come into play.
Protecting Business Operations and Reputations
Our firm understands that hospitality, liquor license and gaming liability cases can be particularly troublesome for our clients. Serious injuries can lead to costly legal claims, and the press is often quick to sensationalize a case threatening a company’s reputation. When incidents surface, our attorneys act quickly to address the fallout and take measures to protect our clients from potentially damaging and inflammatory media accounts.
At MSZL&M, we work with our clients to develop a game plan at the earliest possible stage in the process. We fully investigate the claim and provide our clients with an objective analysis of the costs, risks and realities associated with all available courses of action. This comprehensive investigation and analysis allows our clients to make informed decisions that best protect their business operations.
In addition to resolving high stakes claims, our attorneys are frequently called upon to present seminars on hospitality and liquor license liability matters. These programs serve as a vital tool in helping industry members develop and implement practices designed to prevent costly legal claims and lawsuits.
