Hotel & Leisure

It goes without saying that Italy is an extremely popular tourist destination. For that reason, our hotel sector and the sector that broadly includes theme parks and all the services for holidays and leisure time are crucial to the success of the Italian economy. We can assist operators in this market with a full range of legal and tax assistance.

LCA advises on all commercial, real estate, administrative and tax matters that may arise if you’re in charge of small hospitality facilities, hotels and hotel chains and, more generally, if you’re a player operating in the leisure sector.

We work to meet the needs of a wide range of clients in this industry: investors, owners, developers, operators, large international hotel chains, casino operators, booking platforms and suppliers of goods and services to the hotel industry. We are proud to assist industry players in all areas of law, including:

  • acquisitions and disposals of facilities and equity investments in related companies
  • lease and facility management contracts
  • customer relations and GDPR compliance
  • disputes, including with customers and consumer associations
  • advertising, marketing and communication activities in the hotel sector, including the management of competitions and prizes
  • negotiating and concluding contracts with hotel suppliers, e.g., developers of highly specialised reservation and revenue management software
  • environmental, administrative and regulatory issues
