Hotel Development

We are one of a few firms that can boast the experience of providing Hotel legal advisory services from Adelaide to Sydney to Dubai, and more.


Commercial & Legal have both local, interstate and international experience with providing legal advice in relation to hotel developments.

We consider ourselves the standout leaders in the Adelaide market for developers and investors seeking to deal with hotel operators or acquire hotel assets.

Being more than just a transactional lawyer, as your legal advisor we can be involved with any aspects of early due diligence, hotel operator selection, preparation of hotel legal agreements, dealing with construction finance, and assisting in the construction phase right through to opening day.

When it comes to preparation or review of Hotel Agreements, we are well experienced with term sheets, hotel management agreements, technical services agreements, hotel leases, system licence agreements and other ancillary agreements normally associated with hotels and service apartments.

We are also accustomed to advising on hotels forming part of a greater mixed use development, with apartments and/or other commercial space. This is where our strategic knowledge and front line advice is best seen.
