Hotels and Leisure

Clients turn to Allen & Overy for our proven track record and understanding of the hotels and leisure sector.

We first became involved in the sector at the beginning of the 1980s and have continuously developed our practice since then. We advise some of the world's largest and most prestigious hotel chains and investors on the full range of legal services including acquisitions, disposals, developments and construction, equity capital market fundraisings, bond issues, whole business securitisations, litigation and M&A.

Allied to this is the sector insight that we have built up over the previous 30 years. Our unmatched international footprint among elite global law firms means we have advised on matters in over 40 jurisdictions mirroring the development of the hotels and leisure sector as it has grown internationally.

Our investor client base includes corporate owners, private equity funds and high net worth individuals among others. Given the real estate-backed nature of the asset class, transactions in the sector regularly involve advanced financing solutions enabling us to combine our structuring and tax advice with project management expertise.
