From prominent international tourism development projects to discrete hotel property transactions, Curtis advises clients on the full range of tourism matters. Clients include owners and developers, government entities, investors and lenders involved in projects across the globe.
In order to succeed, tourism development projects require broad expertise in various aspects of the law. Developers need legal experts who are well versed in mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, tax strategies, government concessions, contract negotiations, hotel management, real estate, labor and employment and restructuring matters. It is equally important that your advisors should be adept at crafting agreements that can balance the frequently conflicting agendas of involved parties.
With wide-ranging industry experience, deep knowledge of local legislative frameworks across jurisdictions and a keen awareness of how important relationships are to the successful outcome of your commercial projects, our tourism development and hotels lawyers can guide you through your most critical transactions.
The team routinely advises on project finance, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, tax, environmental, development agreements, purchase and sales agreements, and ownership agreement matters in the tourism and leisure industry. On the financing side, we have broad experience with handling secured, high yield and equity financings, construction agreements, leases, joint ventures, concession and operating contracts and workouts.
The firm’s real estate practice complements our tourism development and hotels group in advising clients on the legal intricacies of their transactions as they are affected by changing trends in the commercial property sector. A growing appreciation of tourism’s potential as a major revenue source has spurred greater investment in tourism infrastructure development, which often requires public-private partnerships. The team represents numerous government ministries and related agencies and instrumentalities on the structuring, documentation and implementation of those public-private partnerships. This includes negotiating restrictive covenants, concession rights, conditions of approval, and various other relevant agreements.
Tax and environmental matters are key drivers of every tourism project. Members of the team can craft investment vehicles to minimize local, international and foreign tax liability, as well as conduct due diligence and assess environmental liabilities, insurance, future compliance costs, deed restrictions and permit transfers.
