Attorney John B. Gessner’s current client is a lot different than Arby’s, Golden Corral and Boston Market, three restaurants he previously represented. Their workers do not wear tight tank tops and short orange shorts.

Gessner is the general counsel and corporate secretary for Dallas-based Texas Wings Inc., the Texas franchisee of the Hooters restaurant chain. Hooters is known for its chicken wings and cold beer but is famous for its attractive, provocatively attired waitresses. Gessner, who joined Texas Wings in 2003 after 19 years of private practice, handles conventional restaurant legal issues for Hooters, such as employment law matters, but also more idiosyncratic legal issues particular to the chain.
