Welcome to our latest hotel update. Rather than sharing my own thoughts on trends affecting the sector, I have invited Barry Hembling, a partner in our construction team to provide an overview of three common pitfalls in hotel construction projects.
Fladgate’s hotel team has continued to remain busy over the past few months and we have been pleased to advise on hotel transactions across many segments of the industry. We have recently welcomed Jenny Sargeant into the team from Macfarlanes. A short biography giving details of her experience and expertise is set out in the update. We were also delighted to have achieved a second tier ranking in the Hotel section of the recently published Legal 500 directory.
My partners James Fry and Eddie Powell are attending The Annual Hotel Conference in Manchester on 12 and 13 October and look forward to catching up with many of you then.
