For many, the essence of the Pacific Northwest is captured in a crisp sip of locally crafted IPA, a morning view of Mt. Hood from a hotel room, or the welcoming smile of a server ready to explain the difference between the Columbia Valley and the Columbia Gorge. Behind each of these experiences is a fascinating business thriving in a highly competitive and legally complex industry.

Hotels, restaurants, brewers, vintners, and businesses related to the arts, recreation, entertainment, and travel turn to the food, beverage, and hospitality attorneys and professionals at Landerholm, P.S. for guidance on how to develop, grow, and sustain dynamic companies.

  • Corporate governance and taxation
