British Columbia’s natural beauty and diverse population supports a robust hospitality industry allowing both residents and visitors to take in a variety of leisure and recreational activities.
From restaurants to spas, yoga studios to arenas, businesses require timely advice and strategic guidance to succeed in this diverse and rapidly changing industry.
Farris lawyers advise businesses in all stages of their development and in all aspects of the industry. They support the initial stages of a new venture, guiding owners, investors and developers through financing options, real estate acquisitions and often complex regulatory requirements. Our lawyers have the expertise to provide strategic advice on the financial and operational structure of new and established enterprises, including the evolution of businesses through mergers and acquisitions.
A sound understanding of labour and employment law is key for an industry so heavily reliant on human resources. Our lawyers regularly act for both unionized and non-unionized clients and advise on a range of issues in the industry.
