According to the Houston Business Journal, Houston lawyer Stephen Barth is carving out a legal niche for the hospitality industry. The Business Journal interviewed Stephen and hailed the site as something very exciting in the world of hospitality law. HospitalityLawyer.com was in its fifth year at the time, and the site had co-sponsored the fifth annual Hospitality Law Conference. These conferences bring in executives from all areas of the hospitality industry, such as hotels, restaurants, clubs, gaming spaces, resorts, travel and tourism businesses, in-house attorneys, outside counsel, risk managers, directors of loss prevention, franchise service directors, meeting planners and human resource professionals, according to the Business Journal.
“I think — I hope — we have helped bring about awareness that there is this concept called ‘hospitality law.’ It’s not that we invented it, but, hopefully, we’ve helped gel the concept. Our goal is to bring people together so that they can help each other.”
