Hotels and Resorts
We have a long history of representing resort hotel operators and developers, including some of the leading publicly-traded companies in this field. We represent clients in connection with acquisitions, development (including as part of mixed-use developments), construction, golf course development and permitting, tax structuring and financing. This representation often involves attorneys from our real estate, corporate, land-use, tax and environmental practice areas.
We assisted a publicly traded luxury hotel company in the acquisition of one of New York’s leading restaurant properties and acquisitions of five star hotels in South Carolina, Louisiana, Colorado and the Bahamas.
We represented an owner in connection with loans of $65,000,000, $58,000,000 and $51,000,000 secured by mortgages on leading hotel properties.

He also represented a UK hotel company which purchase several hotels in New York City, and worked on hotel developments in the Bahamas and St. Maarten.
One of our partners represented a publicly-traded company that ran hotels, golf courses, diving facilities and time share facilities in Aruba, the Bahamas, Barbados, St Maarten, Bonaire, Cayman Brac, St. Croix and Antigua.
