Hotels & Leisure

As an owner, investor, lender or operator in the hotels and leisure sector, you encounter complex business problems on a daily basis. In addition to managing your real estate assets, you face issues relating to employment, corporate, environment, tax, tenant and construction matters, often across borders. With over 100 specialists in 39 countries, we can advise you on development, M&A, leases, management and franchising, tax, construction, financing and structuring. Our mixed client base means we also advise banks, accountants and administrators, giving us an all-round view of your key issues.

CMS lawyers lead strategically in the sector, providing eight of the ten largest hotel chains in Europe with expert advice. 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 asset 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.

Examples of deals completed in 2015: acquisition by a private investor of the La Demeure hotel in Paris; Sale by 21 Centrale Partners of its stake in Vacalians Group in Permira; Acquisition by a private industrialist of the Ibis Convention 15 Hotel in Paris, etc.
