Law within the Hotel & Catering Industry


  • would like to develop a hotel project
  • are a hotel operator or caterer who values industry-specific advice in your day-to-day business, or
  • are the owner of a hotel property in need of a legal advisor with profound knowledge of the hotel industry?

Because of my many years of activity as a corporate attorney in the hotel industry, I can advise hotel operators and owners comprehensively and with a wealth of experience from the industry – both in their day-to-day business and in more complex matters.

In planning and carrying out a hotel project, I can, if required, provide contacts with experts from other specialist fields and can work hand in hand with them. Legal support in the area of hotel business development includes, in particular

  • carrying out legal due diligence investigations
  • providing support in the initial contract phase, confidentiality and exclusivity agreements
  • negotiating and drawing up all contracts relating to the hotel investment, especially
    • property purchase agreements
    • lease agreements
    • management and franchise agreements
  • clarifying all other legal aspects of the investment such as, e.g. any labor law issues relating to transactions and the founding of the company
