As competition in the hotel and hospitality sector continues to increase, clients demand the knowledge, track record and professionalism of lawyers who can close the deal effectively.
With a truly national practice, ZAG-S&W’s US lawyers represent owners, investors, lenders, managers and other parties involved in the hospitality industry. We help our clients to overcome numerous complex challenges, including mixed-use developments, ground lease transactions, multiple stakeholder arrangements and governance issues.
We have particular experience in advising hospitality REITs with a wide variety of financing, acquisition and disposition, tax and operational matters. For example, we advised publicly held REITs on the acquisition of full-service hotels located in Chicago, San Francisco, and Portland, as well as another publicly held REIT in its acquisition of a portfolio of nine hotels located in eight different states.
Within our extensive roster of clients, we have represented national and international lenders in connection with providing a range of acquisition loans, senior- and mezzanine-construction financing with regards to hotels in Atlanta, New York and many other cities across the United States.
