Hotels & Leisure

Belgium

As an owner, investor, lender or operator in the hotels and leisure sector, you encounter complex business issues that require expert solutions. In addition to managing real estate assets, your issues may include corporate, tax, financing, construction, environment, litigation and employment matters, often across borders. With over 100 specialists in 39 countries, we 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. We can introduce you to other sector players, including operators, purchasers, vendors, construction firms, financiers and investors. Such contacts can prove invaluable to your business. 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.
