Hospitality & Restaurants

For decades, Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman has represented high profile restaurants and hotels, from New York City landmarks to burgeoning multinational chains. We are uniquely well versed in the multiplicity of issues that confront restaurateurs and hoteliers.

We have helped develop comprehensive trademark filing programs for our clients, and counseled them on how to protect recipes as trade secrets. We have also advised clients on how to protect themselves via the use of confidentiality and non-compete agreements, and, as appropriate, have commenced litigation to safeguard our clients’ most valuable and closely held assets.

We regularly assist our clients in expanding their services and brands, negotiating and drafting licensing and services agreements. We make it a point to become familiar with our clients’ businesses and the challenges they face. Our clients are pleased to know that we recognize their challenges and opportunities, and that we apply that knowledge in building and safeguarding their invaluable Intellectual property.
