Hospitality, Entertainment & Leisure

We are privileged to represent hotels, nightclubs, Mardi Gras krewes, arenas and venues, special events, product suppliers and their insurers. Our hospitality, entertainment and leisure cases have involved claims of premises defects, inadequate security, labor and employment, and negligent operations. We also represent entertainers and performers.

We proactively seek ways to add value to our client relationships. One way we do that for the industries and clients we represent is by presenting seminars as part of employee training programs and at industry conferences, presenting seminars for insurance carriers and their insureds, and publishing articles and risk management guidelines. Covered topics include litigation trends, insurance coverage, indemnity, implementing and maintaining a culture of safety, incident investigation, substantive areas of law, risk management, mock trials, trial practice, depositions, government regulation and industry standards

Several of our directors are actively involved in IALDA, the International Amusement and Leisure Defense Association, an association of operators, defense counsel, insurance professionals, experts and others actively engaged in representing the interests of the amusement, recreation, sports & leisure industries. Galloway Johnson Director Lambert J. Hassinger, Jr. (“Joe”) serves as president of IALDA for the 2010-2012 term.

Galloway Johnson also serves on the Charter Board of Directors of the NRRDA, an organization formed to advance and protect the interests of the retail and restaurant industries by developing strategies to reduce the number and severity of claims, manage common risks and enhance our defense position in litigated matters. Its national membership includes corporate counsel, industry representatives, insurance representatives and defense counsel.
