WEEKLY SPOTLIGHT

Attorney of the Week
Brian Cafritz 

Brian has been an invaluable member of the KPM LAW team since 1994, his commitment having helped solidify and expand the foundation of KPM LAW’s regional defense network. Brian primarily focuses his practice on the defense of Fortune 500 companies that operate under large self-insured retentions. With bar licenses in four jurisdictions, he has built a dedicated team and developed an efficient system that allows him to aggressively defend all matters in a regional practice that covers the entire mid-Atlantic region. As Brian’s practice became more focused on Retail and Restaurant litigation, it became evident to him that the Plaintiff’s bar was more organized in sharing its resources, and so in 2006 – 2007, Brian co-founded the National Retail and Restaurant Defense Association (NRRDA) to promote the education and communication channels of industry leaders and counsel. Brian was elected to serve two terms as the association’s first president. Under Brian’s leadership, NRRDA continued to grow. Today, NRRDA boasts over 600 members and is seen as a leader in the Retail and Restaurant sector.

Law Firm of the Week
Laner Muchin

Our mission is to be the premier law firm concentrating exclusively in the representation of employers in labor relations, employment litigation, employee benefits and business immigration. To fulfill this mission, we continuously strive to satisfy our clients by providing unparalleled service and expertise in these areas. We accomplish our goals by serving in the dual role of lawyers and business advisors who undertake to provide solutions and strategies which demonstrate a clear understanding of each client’s unique business needs. In fulfilling our mission, we stress the importance of a preventive approach to employment relations. Whenever possible, we seek to provide non-adversarial solutions that make good business sense. Our goal is to help our clients control costly legal fees that can arise in the context of employment litigation and also to promote positive employee relations. On the other hand, when our clients are faced with employment litigation, we zealously defend their interests in a creative and cost-effective manner.

Company of the Week
HVS

A number of entities rely on HVS for hotel valuations and appraisals of existing properties and proposed projects, particularly lenders that are considering refinancing or issuing a loan on a hotel or hotel project, lenders and hotel owners needing a value opinion for loan or portfolio monitoring, and accountancy firms compiling large portfolio valuations. Changing markets and variances in neighborhood and real estate values can cause fluctuations in how a hotel is appraised. When refinancing, issuing loans, or investing in hotel real estate, lenders, owners, and potential owners must have confidence in the value opinion on which they base their decisions. HVS provides highly credible hotel valuations and appraisals, with value opinions based on methodologies that have set industry standards. We’re hotel specialists, not generalists that may only perform a few hotel appraisals a year. To that point, we have developed a network of expert hotel appraisers who have analyzed more than 6,000 markets worldwide. Through our multinational team and distinctive hotel valuation research methods, we provide you with hotel valuations and appraisals that you can depend on to move your projects ahead.
