Red Pie Consulting

Legal Consultancy in Hospitality and Arts

Red Pie is a legal business management consultancy providing specialist services to the Hospitality and Leisure and Arts sectors.


We partner with clients to identify key areas of competitive advantage in their legal business affairs, work with them to address their critical legal challenges and help secure lasting results. We are UK based but work with a range of international clients on their domestic and international commercial activities. Our advice and representation is discrete, pragmatic and effective.


Legal risk is a key issue in both the heavily regulated Hospitality sector and the unregulated Arts sector.


Identifying legal risks and opportunities is fundamental to transactional and operational success and to profitable dispute resolution. Clients who understand how better to exploit, address, organise and manage their legal issues stand the best chance of prospering in today’s competitive climate.


Why work with Red Pie?


We have the ability and experience to work closely with clients in the Hospitality and Arts sectors, to identify their legal risks, tailor their legal strategies and help execute their projects to deliver better, more efficient, innovative and cost effective results. Improved control over legal issues allows our clients to seize new opportunities and avoid potential pitfalls, including costly litigation. Where disputes cannot be avoided, we are skilled in alternative approaches to resolution, working with utmost discretion.
