Hotels & Leisure lawyers

Whether you’re an owner, investor, lender or operator in the hotels and leisure sector, you have complex business needs that call for expert solutions. As well as managing real estate assets, you may face corporate, tax, financing, construction, environment, litigation and employment issues, often across borders. With over 300 experts in 42 countries, our International practice can advise you on M&A, financing, development & construction, leases, management and franchise agreements and tax structuring. In addition to our core client base of investors and lenders, we also advise operators, brand owners, administrators, construction companies and technology providers.

CMS lawyers lead strategically in the sector, advising the top investors, funds and lenders in the market. We consistently advise on more transactions in this sector in Europe than any other law firm. This means you get access to the latest information, ideas and opportunities. . If you are involved in a distressed situation, our real estate restructuring lawyers can help sell your hotel or leisure asset out of insolvency. In the event of a dispute, our industry experts can guide you through the litigation process, ensuring you the best outcome.

Being so immersed in the sector, means that we can also introduce you to other sector players, including operators, purchasers, vendors, construction firms, financiers and investors - as well as developed hoteliers looking for growth in new and undeveloped markets. Such contacts can prove invaluable to your business.
