In addition, the Firm regularly counsels employers in a variety of industries in connection with employment and employment benefits matters generally, including assisting in formulating employment policies, in areas ranging from drugs and alcohol to disability and discrimination, and in preparing employee handbooks. The firm also regularly assists its clients in defending against or otherwise disposing of claims for putative benefits allegedly due, wrongful discharge, discrimination and other employee claims.


Jack has helped in securing our top talent by preparing and negotiating employment agreements for our key personnel in our restaurant and wine bar businesses. He has also helped amend our investor and operating documentation, strengthening our agreements, resulting in peace of mind. Jack is extremely good at what he does. I recommend him unequivocally for all hospitality-related legal work.

I have used Jack for every employment-related matter involving my career for more than a decade. He always gets the best possible results. I’ve gone through a number of lawyers in my time, but Jack has been the best. I am completely satisfied with his work. He stays in constant communication with his clients and I trust him completely. I refer others to Jack and will continue to do so.

KB&G did an excellent job representing us in an extremely complex matter relating not only to asset-based financing in the real estate arena, but also public securities issues. Harry Beatty and Michael Kent were not only absolutely on point on the legal issues, but they were also able to bring about a practical economic solution to our over $50 million problem.

During the sixteen years that KB&G has represented Sultana, it has grown into one of the region’s largest confectionery and food product distributors. Michael and his dedicated team earned my trust many years ago and now handle all aspects of our business including financing, employee matters, distribution agreements, real estate transactions, commercial litigations, and special projects which require cutting-edge contracts.

Harry represented Seagram when my company purchased their Puerto Rico operations. He was talented and tough, but forthright and fair. When he left Seagram, we wanted him on our side, and we have relied on him ever since.
