Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure

The hospitality, tourism and leisure industry is not confined to providing travel services and holiday destinations. It incorporates staging sporting and cultural events and constructing new venues, gambling operations, inner-city regeneration and transport infrastructure. These can require funding, construction advice, management agreements and government approvals.

Our experience in hospitality, tourism and leisure is as diverse as the sector we serve, with an emphasis on achieving successful commercial outcomes for our clients and developing long-term relationships. For that reason, our team includes specialists in real estate, construction, technology, taxation, banking, corporate, competition, litigation, government and intellectual property law to deal with all aspects of our clients’ legal needs.

Our expertise includes event venues and recreational parks, free-to-air and pay TV, gaming and wagering, hotels and resorts, liquor licensing, sports marketing and management and tourism operations.

As evidence of our on-going commitment to the industry, team members have leadership roles in peak bodies such as the Tourism Task Force.
