The San Francisco Bay Area is renowned for its fine restaurants, hotels, and resorts, and Coblentz is proud to have represented many of the premier chefs, establishments, owners, and developers in the region—and beyond—for decades.

    Because we have such a rich background in the hospitality industry, we thoroughly understand the wide-ranging issues our clients face both in transactional and litigation matters. Coblentz also often acts as outside general counsel for these companies, offering sound business advice to help build the strong corporate foundation needed in an industry that can be quite volatile.

    We have a depth of experience in many areas—corporate, employment, intellectual property, real estate, and litigation—and the attorneys from these various practices work hand-in-hand to make sure our clients get the comprehensive support they need.

    Our experience includes:

    • Providing general corporate advice, including entity structuring, private placement financing, corporate governance counseling, SEC and other securities filings, and license negotiations
    • Resolving contract employment and business partnership disputes
    • Handling general litigation matters
    • Preparing real estate development purchase and lease agreements
    • Providing comprehensive tax, estate planning, succession planning, and entity formation for closely held hospitality ventures, winery businesses, and families
    • Representing clients in all aspects of trademark, copyright, labeling, branding, brand enforcement, and advertising
