The hospitality and leisure industry spans numerous sub-sectors including hotels, pubs and restaurants, travel, health and fitness, all of which are sensitive to the regulatory landscape, technical innovation and consumer confidence.
With mounting pressure to evolve innovatively and deliver quality and value in a highly competitive sector, the industry is increasingly engaging more with its consumers on a multichannel basis through social media and mobile technologies.
Our Hospitality & Leisure Group understand the challenges facing all participants in this sector. We regularly advise developers, operators, owners, landlords and investors – from start-ups to prestigious hotel groups and Michelin starred restaurants – on a range of legal services including Corporate, Real Estate, Commercial and Intellectual Property.
We are passionate about helping our clients to grow their businesses, and have expertise across a wide range of areas from brand development and acquiring or leasing property to employing staff, and negotiating with suppliers, clients or customers.
