Hospitality, Tourism & Gaming

Hospitality, tourism and gaming makes up a significant and growing part of the Australian economy. Tourism alone is one of our most important industries, fed by a multitude of hotels, motels, restaurants, nightclubs, entertainment venues and gaming establishments across the country. Yet businesses within these sectors face a raft of challenges including global travel fluctuations, increased regulation and ever-increasing business overheads.

Our specialist hospitality, tourism and gaming lawyers understand the unique demands faced by clients in these constantly changing industries. We offer a practical, tailored service to help clients operate effectively in a challenging commercial environment. By successfully navigating the risks, clients are well placed to take advantage of new opportunities and reap the rewards inherent in these exciting but demanding sectors.

We act for a broad range of clients including hoteliers, property developers, owners and operators, restaurateurs, vignerons and brewers, wholesalers, entertainment venue and nightclub operators, receivers and liquidators. We also have strong experience working with liquor and gambling regulators.

Our lawyers work in concert with other specialists across the firm to provide comprehensive legal advice, including in relation to contracts and agreements of every kind, acquisitions and disposals, landlord and tenant, planning and environment, liquor licensing, gaming licensing and regulation, workplace relations and employment, taxation, intellectual property and dispute resolution.
