Hotels and hospitality

The hotel and hospitality sector is becoming increasingly specialized. Our significant sector experience helps us ensure that the companies and individuals we work with get the best value out of their transactions, wherever they are in the world.

The hotel and hospitality market is seeing rapid activity and expansion due to increasing levels of investment from both corporates and high net worth individuals.

Withers worldwide global hotels and hospitality team services the hotels, real estate and tourism industries across the globe with support across our strategic offices in Asia, Europe, USA and the Caribbean.
 

The hotels and hospitality industry is an increasingly specialised sector and sophisticated legal, yet commercial and pragmatic, advice from experienced hospitality lawyers is critical to ensuring clients obtain optimum value out of any transaction. And with our global office footprint, we can provide the advice you need, when and where you need it.

We work with some of the industry's most respected hotel owners and developers, funds, private members' clubs and many of the leading global, regional and boutique operators. Our hospitality lawyers also have significant personal networks in the industry, and are sought out for their deep sector know-how and experience.

We provide clients with advice on site acquisitions, hotel portfolio and platform transactions, mixed use developments, forward funding, hotel leasing, hotel management agreements, franchise agreements, joint ventures and fund formation.

We also offer integrated advice on critical ancillary areas of the law related to the full life cycle of any hotel project such as planning, construction, financing, employment, IP, IT and data protection/privacy and dispute resolution as well as co-ordinated trust and tax planning advice, through our market leading tax and private client teams.
