Having completed numerous hotel projects and transactions both domestically and abroad, our hospitality team is experienced in overcoming the unique challenges of this industry, and has extensive insight to contribute.


E+H has one of the leading hospitality teams in Austria, encompassing all the proficiency required for a successful hotel project. In addition to the industry-specific expertise from our Corporate + M&A and Real Estate practice groups, the team also includes experts from the fields of Employment Law, Banking + Finance, Dispute Resolution, Public Law, and Restructuring + Insolvency.

Hotel investments have been rapidly increasing in popularity for many years. At the same time, the legal landscape has become more complex as the entire hotel industry becomes more professional, and innovative “serviced living” concepts proliferate, such as senior & assisted living, branded residences, micro apartments, and staff housing. Lately, the hotel industry has been massively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Construction contractors have been facing soaring construction costs and extreme delivery delays, often necessitating restructuring, divestitures, or quick, bilateral solutions.


Our team’s multidisciplinary network and comprehensive knowledge of the industry enable us to provide customized, proficient, and holistic advice throughout the entire life cycle of a hotel or “serviced living” property. In cross-border transactions, we act as a single point of contact for our clients and coordinate partner law firms in the relevant jurisdictions. In this way, we support our clients in their international expansion and ensure both uniform documentation and a high standard of quality.
