The Leisure & Hospitality industry is a broad and complex sector, and one which is susceptible to unique risks. We understand and appreciate the challenges of managing multiple venues around the country with an ever changing workforce, huge public footfall and the pressures this places on management at local and national level. We also recognise it is crucial to mitigate the impact of litigation on corporate reputation.
BLM acts for a range of leisure and hospitality clients, directly and through insurers, including pubs and breweries, hotels, health clubs, entertainment centres, recreational facilities and sports centres. We adopt a collaborative approach to working with our customers, positioning ourselves as essentially an extension of their team. We have successfully defended a variety of cases protecting reputation and safeguarding brands.
We have specific expertise in the following areas of law:
Health & Safety
Immediate legal advice and representation wherever required, at police, HSE and local authority interviews.
Handling claims arising from exposure to hazardous substances, landfills or contaminated watercourses.
Advising on anti-social behaviour, possession, drafting tenancy agreements and leases, and handling issues of access.
Defendant claims services, road transport regulatory advice, policy coverage, counter-fraud investigations, recovery of insured and uninsured losses and defending RTA prosecutions.
Investigating and defending casualty claims, with knowledge of the specific liability issues that arise, particularly in the leisure & hospitality sectors.
Product recall & liability
Product-related disputes, recalls, prosecutions and reputation-sensitive matters on behalf of multi-national corporations, retailers, suppliers and their insurers.
BLM’s Leisure & Hospitality team is more than just a legal advisory service. We may be lawyers, but our depth and breadth of experience allows us to stand beside you in dealing with the day to day issues which shape your business.
We appreciate that your main concern is running your business. Dealing with claims and insurance is not your core focus, but you can rest assured that it is ours.
