I have just been sued for ADA violations at one of my hotels. How can you help?
Our team of experts has defended more than 500 ADA and related accessibility claims across the country for owners, operators, developers and lenders. The targeted properties are all “public accommodations” including hotels, resorts, timeshares, bed and breakfasts, restaurants, spas, sports facilities, wineries, theaters and other commercial real estate, such as apartment communities, shopping centers, retail stores and banks. We also assist clients in Department of Justice investigations, administrative proceedings and litigation.
Being ADA-friendly is good business. Accessibility compliance is the law. And it is much cheaper to be proactive on accessibility issues than to defend lawsuits. That is why a significant part of our practice is devoted to helping clients with proactive accessibility-compliance audits, training staff and developing written policies and procedures. We also advise on website accessibility, online reservation systems, Certified Access Specialist (CASp) strategies and claim prevention.
Representative clients for single property and national, system-wide accessibility audits and compliance matters include Red Lobster, the Olive Garden, Extended Stay America, Strategic Hotels, Best Western, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, Joie de Vivre Hotels, Rock Bridge Capital, JP Morgan Chase Bank, Wells Fargo Bank, The Limited, Best Buy, Victoria’s Secret, PG&E, and the City of San Francisco. Our engagements range from a single location bed and breakfast to chain-wide compliance for a 6,000-property chain.
