The Southeast contributes heavily to the U.S. hospitality sector’s $1.5 trillion economic output, particularly in tourist havens like Atlanta and Charleston. Both public and private stakeholders are deeply invested in the health and long-term growth of the region’s hospitality industry. State and local government initiatives to buoy tourism and visitor traffic, therefore, come as no surprise.

Staying up-to-date on legal and regulatory developments shaping the hospitality industry is more vital than ever, and players in the sector require legal guidance from attorneys with deep roots in the Southeast.
