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 41 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.
