In the world of hotel transactions there are a large number of local operational components that must be managed in the process.  This might include local permitting and liquor licensing.  The AHIA Membership provides an ideal source for identifying lawyers with the specific skills needed to accomplish the larger transaction.  Membership in AHIA has allowed me to expand my transactional team as needed for any transaction.
