We advise hospitality clients on corporate matters across the world and the team is particularly well known for our work on cross-border transactions often involving complex structures across a large number of jurisdictions.
The practice covers the whole spectrum of corporate work, including M&A, joint ventures, strategic alliances and fundraising. We also handle advisory work for our corporate clients, advising in cases of complex or unusual corporate shareholding or management structures. In particular, we are skilled at helping bridge the gap between UK and international corporate and securities law. This includes assisting in the training of Board members and senior managers regarding their responsibilities.
Managing successful relationships with suppliers and business partners is an essential part of every business. Our Commercial Group has developed a strong track record of working efficiently with in-house teams understanding the need for flexibility and straightforward advice.
The outsourcing of the technology that supports both back office functions and customer facing services has become common place for the hospitality industry and this has put additional on focus on the management of IT services. We regularly advise hospitality clients on issues relating to conducting business over the internet or on mobile devices, including web site terms and conditions; hosting and software as a service agreements, acceptable use and social media policies and data protection and privacy.
