Expert lawyers in the hotels and leisure sector of leading UK law firm, Shepherd and Wedderburn are to play a prominent role in the industry’s premier event: Finance for Hotel Investment and Development in the UK and Continental Europe, of which the firm is a sponsor. The event takes place on Monday, 23 November and is set to attract industry leaders.

The firm’s hotels and leisure team has over the years built up a strong reputation in the hotels sector, advising many of the country’s leading hotel investors, developers, financiers and operators on day- to-day operations as well as more specialist projects. Involvement in this event, therefore, provided a very good fit for the firm.

Property and Infrastructure Partner Hugh Smith, who heads up the team commented: “This event provides the unique opportunity to connect with key figures in the hotel finance sector. We are looking forward to the discussion on significant developments that have taken place in the sector over the last 12 months and learning from the experiences and views of impressive speaker line-up. We are pleased to sponsor the drinks reception.”

This year’s event focuses on key questions of: who is lending, at what cost and for what purpose, as well as new developments and trends in the UK and Continental Europe. It attracts hotel owners, investors and operators, their chief executives and finance directors, as well as brands, lenders, agents, advisors and consultants.
