The attorneys of Hyman & Lewis understand that our clients business interests often involve complex interactions with local and state government. We serve as a point of contact to interact and collaborate with government agencies to keep our clients in compliance with pertinent rules and regulations. When necessary, we also serve as an effective advocate to challenge agencies through administrative hearings or judicial review of administrative actions.
A significant subset of our regulatory practice includes counseling clients in the service and hospitality industry as to compliance with business licensing and permitting requirements, including the Florida Responsible Vendor Act. Often, the best defense against adverse regulatory action is provided to these clients through an ongoing educational relationship which keeps them up to date and informed on the state of the law.

Responsible Vendors Litigation (Restaurant/Bar/Clubs/Hospitality)
- Employment Contracts Disputes
- Liquor Liability
- Negligent Hiring
- Vendor Contracts Disputes
