Leisure & Hospitality


Our leisure and hospitality team advises owners, operators, developers, investors, lenders, asset managers and industry associations. We have been closely involved with projects on all sides of the leisure industry and have acted on deals across a large number of jurisdictions.

Our experience encompasses a broad range of transactions, from single asset hotel deals, development and resort projects through to multiple asset portfolio transactions. We regularly advise and negotiate management agreements, leases, and franchise agreements as well as related funding, technical support, facilities outsourcing, brand licensing and non-disturbance arrangements. We also have considerable experience in providing advice and representation in relation to alcohol and entertainment licensing.

We advise across the spectrum of leisure businesses, including clubs, food service, gyms, gaming, hotels, pubs and restaurants. As a result, our team has developed an in-depth understanding of the motivation that drives industry players and the dynamics affecting the sector and leisure-related transactions.
