Hotels & Leisure

With the global hotel & leisure industry facing challenges such as the current economic uncertainty, lack of brand loyalty among customers and the value puzzle, good legal advisers that truly understand the international and domestic hospitality sector are invaluable.

With our extensive knowledge of the industry we are at the cutting-edge of market trends in areas such as turnover leases and franchise and management contracts. We ensure that when your business expands, you can take advantage of the most sophisticated and current structures available.

Our expertise, acknowledged by clients and legal directories alike, in real estate development, hotel and leisure finance, franchising, operating agreements and joint ventures, has helped us to give our clients an advantage over their competitors. We create “bankable” agreements which enable you to move forward with your projects quickly and cost effectively.

With offices across Europe, exclusive relationships with leading firms in Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Spain and Italy and with lawyers qualified in numerous jurisdictions, including the US, India, China and Japan our reach is truly international. Our presence in each country is built on the strength of our local team and their reputations, but we work with an international perspective to provide clients with a one-stop service.



We work with you to identify the key commercial drivers and major risk factors for your business and decide how these should be reflected at both a structural and an operational level in your business and in each separate market. Where possible we go beyond offering purely legal advice. We partner with you to provide business advice using our market knowledge and previous experience. We pride ourselves on providing you with the right commercial advice that will help you achieve the required outcome.
