Recreation and Tourism

At Forward Law, we understand the unique legal issues facing tourism operators and the outdoor industry.

Operating an adventure, recreation, or tourism business carries inherent risks. Putting forethought into risk management both on paper and on the ground can help tourism operators alleviate some of the risk involved for their guests and themselves.

If you are starting a new business, we can help you decide what business structure will suit you, give you general advice about business practices, insurance, and the relationships you develop with your employees, contractors, and clients.

If you are already in business, we can help you by reviewing employment contracts, waivers, insurance policies, and keeping you up to date on relevant legislation.
