Whether seeking growth through acquiring other existing hotels or sites for development, commercial property law is an area which hotel operators are likely to need help with at some point.
Property acquisitions and disposals, development and estate management are all central to what we do. Our team of commercial property lawyers is unusual in that everyone is well versed in the business issues relating to acquisitions and disposals of going concerns, or TUPE, for example, so we can handle all aspects arising from property transactions. This means that you can be sure projects will be delivered on time and on budget by lawyers who can see the whole picture.
We have handled substantial volumes of individual hotel acquisitions and disposals, as well as dealing with buying and selling portfolios of hotels.
