Purchase and Sale of Hotels, Nightclubs, Bars and Restaurants

When considering the purchase of a hotel or entertainment venue for investment purposes, there are number of things to consider. What are your goals for buying the business? Are you interested in a joint venture or sole ownership? Do you want to buy only the assets of the business or the entire business?

The experienced business attorney at Craig M. Dorne, PA, works to ensure your purchase-sale agreement is structured to protect your financial interests and to limit your liability. In addition to preparing your contract, we handle all due diligence work to identify any outstanding code violations, liens on the business or lawsuits. We work hard to make sure you don’t get more — or less — than you bargained for.

We can also advise and assist with insurance issues, real estate zoning issues and variances, and financing of your new business.

Meeting the Legal Needs of the Miami Hospitality Industry

Lodging and entertainment establishments are subject to a host of additional legal requirements. We help clients with typical business law and contract matters as well as specialized licensing requirements, real estate zoning issues, and municipal code violations.
