Leech Tishman recently launched an online Hospitality, Restaurant, and Bar Industry Resource Center for COVID-19 legal services.
A recent article that appeared in the Pittsburgh Business Times about the Resource Center is available here.
The Resource Center will offer the restaurant, bar and hospitality industry, which has been severely impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic, with information and tools to navigate complex state and local mandates that have significantly impaired or otherwise affected the way they do business as well as information on other pandemic-related legal issues. Leech Tishman’s new Resource Center seeks to assist companies across this industry to address financial losses, get back to business, and protect the health and safety of their customers and employees.
Leech Tishman and the Caputo Law Office are currently representing a large consortium of establishments, including restaurants, bars, and other liquor licensees, that are concerned about recent Orders in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania which have placed strict restrictions on restaurant operations. Over the course of three weeks, the county has released multiple different orders: the initial order banned on-site alcohol consumption; this order was later replaced by a second order mandating the closure of all restaurants; a third order was then released on July 8, putting restrictions on restaurant operations.
