The hospitality industry looks to us for our real estate and hotel operations experience and also for our capabilities in dealing with a broad array of transactional, regulatory counseling, and litigation matters.

We represent clients in connection with single-asset and portfolio acquisitions and dispositions, ground-up development, redevelopment, and restructuring of hotel assets through bankruptcies and acquisitions of debt positions. We structure complex financing, including debt and equity, public subsidies, tax increment financing, public-private partnerships, and other emerging financing vehicles. In addition, we assist our clients in structuring successful management and franchise arrangements.

We have particular expertise in matters involving management and franchise agreements, fraud, fiduciary duties, valuation disputes, accounting and cost allocations, as well as joint venture matters.
