Committee Overview

Welcome to Retail and Hospitality, one of DRI's newest and fastest growing substantive law committees! The mission of the committee is to provide preeminent legal education and professional development, and first class networking opportunities specific to the Retail and Hospitality industries. The members of this committee include outside counsel, in-house counsel and human resource professionals and claims specialists all working within the Retail and Hospitality industries.

The committee actively seeks individuals looking to become involved. Committee participation provides the opportunity to speak at the annual Retail & Hospitality Seminar and during web-conferences throughout the year. The web-conferences are designed to address the wide-ranging claims and challenges that are specific to the Retail and Hospitality industries with presentations by experienced litigators, in-house counsel and claims professionals.

The biggest event of the year for the Committee is the Retail & Hospitality Seminar, which is always held in May. This two-day seminar provides targeted educational and discussion forums on the most pertinent legal and risk management issues facing the Retail and Hospitality industries today. The presenters include highly experienced litigation attorneys and in-house counsel from across the country. While at the seminar, you will have the opportunity to network with attorneys, in-house counsel and claims professionals. For more information about our upcoming programs, click the CLE tab.
