Fladgate’s hotel team is delighted to have been shortlisted for legal adviser of the year by the The IHIF Awards. These new awards celebrate the achievers in the hotel investment community in Europe and will be presented at a Sponsors’ Dinner held in London on 1st November 2011.
During the past year, the Fladgate hotels team has completed transactions with a total value in excess of £450m, including acquisitions, disposals, refinancings, franchise agreements and management contracts for both existing businesses and new operating sites.
Fladgate Chairman, Charles Wander, said:
“The fact that our team has achieved the shortlist for such a prestigious award is testament to the partner led and commercial approach we bring to transactions. The team’s strong performance has been achieved despite the continuing difficult economic climate, which in itself has led to a number of emerging trends, such as transactions driven by insolvent or near insolvent situations and the utilisation of advantageous tax relief schemes. These have led to a number of opportunities for investors and operators and we have been able to utilise our in-depth expertise for the continued benefit of our clients.”
The awards are run by industry newsletter Hotel Analyst, The International Hotel Investment Forum organisers Questex Hospitality + Travel and Bench Events and industry publication Hotel Management.
