Miami Hospitality Law Business Attorneys
At Charlip Law Group, LC we have over 30 years of experience dealing with issues affecting restaurants, hotels, resorts, spas and nightclubs. As experienced Miami hospitality attorneys, we have litigated many varied disputes involving the hospitality industry and we have acted as counsel and lawyers as part of the formation, acquisition, sale and renovation of nightclubs, restaurants and hotels and resorts as well as country clubs and golf clubs. In fact, the first two cases David H. Charlip ever defended in the early 1980’s were brought against The Rascal House and Pumpernicks – two of the most well-known South Florida delicatessens (earning him the moniker for a number of years as “the deli lawyer”).
