Leisure and Hospitality

The leisure and hospitality industries are particularly fast moving, with heavy competition and economic pressures, compounded by customers who currently have more options and higher expectations than ever before. Our firm supports a wide range of local and multinational clients during development, operation, or financing of operations in the leisure and hospitality sectors.

Our firm understands industry trends as well as strategic commercial and practical considerations, meaning that our legal support extends well beyond simple real estate advice. We regularly advise clients about asset and portfolio acquisitions, financings, corporate immigration and other establishment issues, as well as operational, and dispute resolution or avoidance matters.

The leisure and hospitality industries are inherently international, with clients’ daily operations routinely crossing national and even continental borders. These factors mean foreign investment, tax, and governance matters must be carefully planned to ensure the most cost and time efficient structures. Intellectual property portfolios in these industry sectors are often complex, involving overlapping local and global monitoring requirements, as well as enforcement alternatives.

Our integrated approach to providing legal support means that leisure and hospitality also benefit from access to related practice areas, particularly our strong dispute resolution, corporate, tax, employment, commercial contracts, and intellectual property teams.
