Overview Press Room

Overview

Our Lodging & Gaming Group has long been recognized in legal and business circles for the influential role we play in the industry. We represent owners, investors, managers and lenders in virtually every kind of deal, from the sale of brands, chains, portfolios and single assets, to advising on management and other operational arrangements, to providing counsel on the formation and structuring of new brands.

Over the years, we have worked with (and across from) major international hotel chains, such as Accor, Fairmont Raffles, Hilton, Hyatt, InterContinental and Starwood, as well as smaller chains and boutique operators such as Aman, Gansevoort, Kimpton, Kor, Morgans, Rosewood, Starwood Capital and Thompson Hotels. We also represent and interact with all the major players in this area, including the largest and most sophisticated institutional debt and equity capital providers, including sovereign wealth funds and private equity funds. Our experience in this area extends to complex, multi-use and multi-location properties and transactions, including public and private REIT structures, mixed-use developments and condominiums.

We have decades of experience and are always on the cutting edge of the practice, focusing on traditional situations as well as new and innovative solutions. The breadth of our experience is vast, but the level of sophisticated and complex matters we handle is the true hallmark of our group.

Our cross-border practice provides clients with seamless access to lawyers across our international network of offices in Asia, the United States, Europe and Latin America, ensuring that all lodging and gaming-related legal matters are handled with agility and efficiency.
