Hotels & leisure

As an industry which is invariably tied to the current economic climate and impacted by wider global factors such as rising oil prices and political instability, the pace of recovery in the global hospitality sector is indicating renewed confidence in the market and an increased appetite for growth. Hospitality and leisure travel remains buoyant in established markets, such as the UK and US, while emerging markets continue to lead the recovery with robust, broad-based investment in markets such as China, Asia, the Middle East and India.

As an Investor, Developer or Hotel Operator you require a single provider to deliver a comprehensive and consistent range of legal services and solutions in all of your markets across the world. At Clyde & Co, we are committed to helping our clients succeed in the markets in which they operate, adapt their businesses to changing market developments and guide them through new territories as they plan for future growth. 

We pride ourselves on our ability to provide a comprehensive range of legal services on complex and cross-border hospitality and leisure transactions, advising national and international hotel chain owners, operators and franchisors in the acquisition, development, management and branding of mixed use master communities and hotel properties. 

In particular, Clyde & Co has specialist knowledge in relation to the subdivision and operation of complex mixed-use hotel developments impacted by local 'multiple-ownership' laws and regularly advises clients in relation to ongoing business operations including the drafting and negotiation of hotel management agreements, licensing and franchising, financing and joint venture agreements. 

The group also benefits from a core team of lawyers with specialist expertise relating to technology, e-commercial and data protection law and is closely aligned with the firm's real estate, intellectual property, corporate and commercial teams.
