Former Marriott In-House Counsel Joins Parker Hudson

Scuttlebutt | May 31, 2013

The law firm of Parker, Hudson, Rainer & Dobbs has added Steven Goldman as a partner in the firm's Atlanta office. Goldman joins Parker Hudson after 20 years as senior-level in-house counsel for three of the nation's largest hotel companies.

Goldman is a commercial lawyer with extensive experience in lodging, franchise, distribution, licensing, and bankruptcy and receivership matters. For most of his in-house career, Goldman was responsible for all matters related to developing and operating international franchise lodging systems. 

He was most recently executive vice president, assistant general counsel and a corporate officer of Marriott International. In this capacity, he oversaw the growth of the company's franchised hotels and global system of over a dozen core brands. Before joining Marriott, Goldman played much the same role as division general counsel for Sheraton and was senior litigation counsel for Holiday Inns. 

His arrival bolsters Parker Hudson's transactional capabilities in franchise, distribution and hospitality, and provides clients with a full-range of legal services related to developing, operating and growing franchise and hospitality systems both domestically and globally.
