Freeths’ specialist hospitality team has worked with drinks companies, hotels and operators in the hospitality and leisure industry for over 25 years, for much as that time being known as Kimbells. Having become part of the national Freeth Cartwright Group in 2011, we changed our name to Freeths in June 2014.
As a strong national brand, with many legal specialists, we are able to support hospitality businesses across the UK, whatever their needs.
Extensive experience of working with the industry means we understand from a practical perspective how the law affects the sector. On the regulatory side we have been involved in a number of ground breaking cases and we continue to act be the first to comment on issues central to the industry, such as the Statutory Code.
We have been involved in high profile industry transactions, such as the acquisition of businesses out of administration, buying and selling major pub and hotel portfolios, acting on joint ventures, advising on corporate restructurings, funding and securitisation of estates, handling brand portfolios – and much more.
Experience such as this, gained on the front line, means we can speak your language and understand your business priorities.
