Development- Resorts & Hotels

Resorts & Hotels

ISY offers comprehensive legal services in the hospitality area, with in-depth experience in hotels, resorts, vacation ownership and condo-hotel projects, restaurants and entertainment operations throughout the country and abroad. This sub-practice includes substantial activity and experience in hotel acquisitions and dispositions, hotel and resort development transactions, joint ventures and management. In particular, our attorneys not only draft and negotiate purchase agreements, hotel management agreements and perform extensive due diligence, but our partners have handled all aspects of various resort and hotel projects, from acquisition of the land, to development, to construction and operation of the project, and finally, to project disposition. Additionally, our attorneys provide expert advice relating to insurance analysis, licensing and permitting (including liquor license applications and transfers), franchising and all other operating issues. We have an unparalleled familiarity with the operational aspects of hospitality projects, frequently acting as quasi-in-house counsel with respect to hotel and resort management, which includes negotiating and drafting vendor service contracts and interacting with owners on behalf of managers. Our attorneys are highly experienced and successful at counseling our clients in the multi-disciplinary manner necessary to successfully guide hospitality projects through all phases of development.
