Retail, Restaurant, and Hospitality Liability

With an extensive track record of navigating favorable settlements and producing outstanding trial results, Tyson & Mendes has a long, successful history of representing clients within the retail, restaurant, and hospitality industries. Our attorneys are known for aggressively defending a wide spectrum of claims against these entities – with optimum results.

The Tyson & Mendes general liability litigation team has effectively defended premises liability, third party tort/assault cases, false imprisonment, food adulteration, excessive force and other claims brought against owners, operators, and managers of a full range of properties – from shopping malls to hotels. We have successfully represented some of the largest chain retailers and hotel companies in the country – as well as neighborhood establishments, mid-sized and local retailers and other commercial businesses, including apartment complexes, construction companies, grocery stores, hospitals, landlords, nightclubs, office buildings, parking lots, REITS, restaurants, retail stores, shopping malls, and more.

Our retail, restaurant and hospitality practice group is led by experienced Tyson & Mendes Partners Kristi Blackwell and Heather Bean.
