Wood & Lee’s hospitality practice includes transactions (acquisition and sale, joint venture, development, financing and management agreement negotiations), operational matters (employment, leasing, construction, service contracts, and deficit funding arrangements), operator/owner disputes (over issues ranging from fee calculation to budget approval) and the workout, restructuring of financially distressed hospitality assets.

Our lawyers have extensive experience and proficiency in virtually every aspect of the hospitality industry.  Our lawyers have created an international hospitality practice, which has been sought out by operators, ownership groups, equity investors and lenders. Our balanced practice allows us to bring a unique perspective to the issues confronting each of the various actors in the industry. Our lawyers regularly represent:

  • Developers
  • Foreign/Domestic Investors
  • Peer-to-peer Property Rental Companies
  • Banks
  • Franchisees
  • Investment Banks
  • Management Companies
  • Owners
  • Pension Fund Advisors
  • Venture Funds

We represent international operators on projects throughout the world. We work on a broad variety of development and operational matters ranging from the structuring, negotiating and documenting of complex joint ventures and development arrangements, to counselling our operator clients on such matters as labour, tax and general compliance with applicable laws. In our role as operator’s counsel, we prepare and negotiate the full range of hospitality documents, including:

  • Management agreements
  • Technical services agreement
  • Intellectual property, license and transfer agreements
  • Spa and recreational use and access agreements
  • Equity participation/venture agreements
  • Franchise agreements
  • Marketing and management agreements for serviced condominiums and apartments
  • Marketing and management agreements for fractional ownership projects
  • Marketing and management agreements for peer-to-peer property rental companies

With the benefit of our experience working from the inside perspective of operators, our lawyers have developed an equally extensive practice in purchase and sale transactions and debt and equity financings, in the representation of lenders and owners in their dealings with operators and in the financial workout or restructuring of properties. A significant part of our hospitality practice involves the representation, in close coordination with our tax lawyers, of REITs, pension trusts and other public and private tax-exempt entities and investment advisors to tax-exempt entities in equity, debt or hybrid investment transactions.
