We regularly handle mergers and acquisitions, securities matters and general corporate matters in the hospitality space and offer tax guidance as well. We have significant depth in structuring and negotiating public-private partnerships and municipal financing transactions for hotels, restaurants and convention facilities. We offer clients training and advisory support to head off issues before they develop.
