Harvest Real Estate Law

Hotel and Property Management

Hotel and Property Management

We Possess A Unique Expertise

Successful hotel and property management requires nuanced and profound experience and expertise to reap the most value from real estate assets.  Harvest’s lawyers are highly skilled at advising clients through various property management issues, from preparing and negotiating vendor agreements to handling insurance claims to working through landlord/tenant disputes.  Our legal team helps our client’s property management teams make risk-adjusted decisions to maximize asset value.

Hotels, resorts and other hospitality projects are unique real estate assets in that they derive much of their value from their day-to-day business operations.  Those operations create complicated legal issues, ranging from real estate matters to liquor license concerns to employment issues.  That being the case, most real estate lawyers are ill-equipped to handle hospitality transactions, but Harvest represents some of the country’s leading hoteliers in the development, acquisition, financing, operation and disposition of hospitality assets.  We benefit from excellent working relationships with the leading franchisors and possess a unique expertise in complicated franchising and management issues.
