Members of our Resort, Hospitality, and Timeshare team have completed an impressive number and range of transactions, including the representation of:

Mountain Resorts

We worked with Timbers Resorts in the redevelopment of The Sebastian - Vail, a 100-room boutique hotel and 36-unit private residence club in Vail Village, Colorado. We continue to serve as lead counsel for hotel and timeshare matters, condominium association negotiations, trademark rebranding, and amending and restructuring all project documents.

Urban Condominiums

We played a key role in converting office space in Ghirardelli Square, a National Historic Landmark in San Francisco, to a fractional condominium and retail project. Our lawyers structured the project, worked with local tax and land-use professionals to subdivide the property, and documented the sale of a block of the interests to a high-end destination club.

Timeshare Projects

We represented a major timeshare development company in its acquisition of another timeshare company and helped transform it into a private operating entity. We continue to represent our client and its various timeshare collections worldwide, providing legal assistance on resort acquisitions, financings, timeshare registrations, licensing issues, and exchange company documentation and registration.
