The Hospitality and Leisure industry covers a wide range of activities and sub-sectors ranging from restaurants and bars to travel and health and fitness. All of these are facing enhanced competition, technological advances and are all looking to grab consumer attention.
As such traditional business models in the sector are constantly being challenged and disrupted and a multi-channel approach to marketing and consumer engagement is essential for hospitality businesses to grow and thrive in the current climate.
As a firm we have been dedicated to supporting the sector since our very start and have a wealth of experience in advising leisure businesses both in the UK and internationally. We regularly advise owners, operators, landlords and investors as well as founders, senior executives and celebrity chefs.
Each of our specialist legal teams have experience of helping businesses, founders and senior management in the Hospitality and Leisure sector.
