5 Nightclub Security Mistakes Owners Should Avoid

NightClubThe Murray Law Firm has recovered millions of dollars for victims of nightclub security negligence and their families. More importantly, we help these victims and their families obtain the justice they deserve. The tragic common denominator behind all of these cases is that they may have been prevented with proper venue security and safety precautions.

Nightclub & Bar magazine has published “5 Security Mistakes Failing Owners Make,” outlined below. We urge nightclub owners to learn from these mistakes and be proactive in creating a safe and secure atmosphere for their patrons.

1. Inadequate Hiring Practices: Managers do not perform real interviews or go through a background vetting process.

2. Inadequate raining: No actual educational training to give employees true guidelines, limits and methods to solve problems.

3. Inadequate Supervision: Managers doing too much or something else at the wrong time; in the office, behind the bar, in the kitchen or off the property when they are needed for true crisis management of an event.

4. Inadequate Number of Guards: Too often, operators think they can do the job with fewer guard than is safe or managers get a false sense of safety after a few weekends without any incidents causing them to cut security staff to save on payroll.

5. Inadequate Policies and Procedures: Employees must be given guidelines on the operation from management.  Employees must be given expectations on what to do regarding the operation and these policies must be trained and reiterated.

Patron Rights and Nightclub Responsibility

Nightclub patrons have a right to be safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment that they are visiting. By law, nightclub owners and managers have a duty to protect patrons from any foreseeable harm.

Bar and nightclub owners are encouraged to implement property security precautions and preventative measures, such as those outlined above, to protect patrons and reduce property violence, injuries and deaths.

Choosing the Right Attorney

Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.

Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!

You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:



If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.

Contingency Fees Disclaimer: “Contingent attorneys’ fees refers only to those fees charged by attorneys for their legal services. Such fees are not permitted in all types of cases. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client.
