The leisure sector is experiencing a period of accelerated change and expansion in response to the appearance of new technologies and changing consumer behaviours and expectations.
Our leisure sector team keeps up to date with all industry developments to provide practical and commercially informed legal solutions. Our clients range from cinema operators, hotel chains, competitive socialising operators, restaurants and pub groups to developers, financiers and operators of sports, cinema and leisure facilities.
Drawing on the expertise of our diverse firm, our team provides advice on a wide range of legal and business challenges.
Our strength in corporate work means that we can advise clients on the structuring, financing and successful execution of major corporate transactions such as acquisitions, disposals, joint ventures and refinancings. More broadly, we support clients across all areas of commercial activity including planning, management, franchising, and operational and promotional matters.
Our real estate specialists help investors, developers and end-users with the acquisition, development, construction and funding of leisure-related developments, both on individual properties and across large portfolios. And in all these activities, our tax team provides advice and expertise to ensure that transactions are structured and managed tax efficiently, particularly in relation to property tax.
