We are the established industry leader in delivering innovative, transformative legal services and business advice for developers, marketers, sellers, operators, and lenders of shared vacation ownership/ timeshare resorts and clubs, vacation/travel/destination clubs, hotels, and other leisure properties. We have represented hundreds of hospitality clients in virtually every type of matter affecting their businesses for more than three decades, and we are specifically known for our leadership and experience in shared vacation ownership and club membership products.

We have pioneered many areas in the shared vacation ownership industry including, points-based vacation clubs and exchange programs, luxury destination and travel clubs, receivable financing and securitization, mixed-use hotel/timeshare/condominium projects, and more recently, we were the leading innovator in structuring and implementing the “capital-light” (fee-based services) platform for shared vacation ownership development, marketing, sale and management. This platform has evolved from a distressed asset solution to a purpose-driven business model adopted by virtually every major company in the shared vacation ownership industry. We have represented clients in nearly three dozen of these complex transactions, with several more currently in process.

Our services include:

  • Project (Hotel and Resort) Acquisition
  • Project (Hotel and Resort) Financing
