WEEKLY SPOTLIGHT

Attorney of the Week
Kendall Kelly Hayden

Kendall focuses her practice in commercial litigation, with an emphasis in transportation and hospitality law, as well as retail, environmental and contamination issues, employment matters, medical malpractice defense, professional liability defense, product liability defense, construction defect matters, first-party insurance coverage, and extracontractual disputes, including defending bad faith claims. She handles both individual and class action litigation, and has appeared before much of the federal bench in and around Dallas. Kendall’s experience in the hospitality industry reflects multiple representative clients, including international hotels and restaurants, boutique bed and breakfasts, party suppliers, spas, and country clubs. Kendall has served as a guest lecturer on the topic of Legal Issues in the Hospitality Industry at the University of Houston’s Conrad N. Hilton College and regularly speaks at the annual Hospitality Law Conference.

Law Firm of the Week
The Denney Law Group

The Denney Law Group is proud to represent start-up companies in various stages of life. Our Nose-to-Tail Law Practice® counsels clients from founding, through growth, to exit, providing high-quality legal services to various industries. We don’t focus on singular problems; rather, we seek to build lasting relationships with our clients so we may grow together. We are exceptionally proud of our nationally-recognized Restaurant, Bar, Alcohol & Hospitality practice. Whether you’re a single-unit restaurant, growing regional chain, seasoned multi-unit operator, hotel, bar, nightclub, brewery, winery, distillery, spirits company, caterer, or private chef, we can address the unique issues your business will face. Some of the clients with whom we have been privileged to work over the years have been in industries as diverse as bespoke letterpress printing, commercial landscaping, member-based private air travel, turn-key retail development, medical, and non-profit, as well as myriad restaurants, bars, private chefs, caterers, breweries, wineries and distilleries. Our small firm is agile: an efficient ninja strike force, capable of adapting and turning on a dime – not a battleship that is impossibly slow to turn. This firm, like your business, is a start-up. We understand what you need and why. We also know that, despite your individuality, you will likely face many of the same challenges faced by those who preceded you. We love being attorneys, but sometimes working with growing companies requires more than just lawyering. We get it. That’s why we are so often called upon by our clients as trusted advisors, providing advice, encouragement, and (surprisingly often) hugs.

Company of the Week
Deloitte

We believe that we’re only as good as the good we do. All the facts and figures that talk to our size and diversity and years of history, as notable and important as they may be, are secondary to the truest measure of Deloitte: The impact we make in the world. So, when people ask, “What’s different about Deloitte?” the answer resides in the many specific examples of where we have helped Deloitte member firm clients, our people, and sections of society to achieve remarkable goals, solve complex problems, or make meaningful progress. Deeper still, it’s in the beliefs, behaviors, and fundamental sense of purpose that underpin all that we do. Now celebrating 175 years of service, our network of member firms spans more than 150 countries and territories. Together, Deloitte’s more than 312,000 people worldwide make an impact that matters. For us, good isn’t good enough. We aim to be the best at all that we do—to help clients realize their ambitions, to make a positive difference in society, and to maximize the success of our people. This drive fuels the commitment and humanity that run deep through our every action.
