Crefovi represents significant participants in market-defining transactions in the ‟hospitality, gaming & leisure” sectors.
Dedicated to serving industry leaders
Ours was one of the first law firms to develop a dedicated global ‟Hospitality, gaming & leisure” group. You only have to read the ‟New technology & data privacy blog”, curated by our team’s lawyers, to convince yourself of their grasp of gaming and data privacy issues. With years of experience and a proven track record in the sector, we help investors, developers, owners and operators with their hospitality, gaming and leisure opportunities.
Crefovi advises some of the world’s largest hotel and casino operations by assisting them in growth from local to global entities. Our law firm represents many of the premier hospitality and gaming companies in market-setting mergers, acquisitions and spin-offs.
We also represent online gaming and gambling establishments, hospitality and catering operations such as conference locations, and organisers and developers of venues for major sporting events, including Formula One races.
A global network of specialist advisers in hospitality, gaming & leisure
Our deep commitment to the ‟hospitality, gaming and leisure” sectors is one of the largest and longest‐standing among European law firms. We are at the cutting edge of the legal and commercial trends transforming these dynamic industries, and with lawyers ‟on the ground” in key global markets – in London and Paris – we regularly work with our clients on innovative strategies as they expand their operations around the world.
To provide results-oriented representation for clients in the hospitality and leisure sectors, Crefovi’s ‟Hospitality, gaming & leisure” industry group coordinates with other sector teams and disciplines to craft legal solutions to business and operation objectives.
As markets expand in the gaming sector, Crefovi lawyers are advising companies and their financial advisors and providers with respect to properties and operations in Europe, as well as the United States, Asia and the Middle East.
