Hospitality & Leisure

Our experience of working in the hospitality and leisure sector is extensive and, owing to that, our lawyers have exceptional experience in the sector and provide our clients with proactive solutions and results. We have worked with a number of the world’s largest hotel chains and franchises, and have provided excellent results for pubs, restaurants and leisure facilities.

At MacRoberts, we understand that there is constant pressure on hospitality and leisure businesses to innovate and to simultaneously provide quality and value, and we work with our clients to help them take full advantage of current and future market trends. 

“Our multi-disciplinary team gives clients access to specialist legal advisers in a wide range of areas such as real estate, intellectual property, construction, employment and tax, providing arobust offering to clients in the Hospitality & Leisure sector.”

    • Food & Drink Zero Waste Week – Don't cry over spoilt beer Industrial beer waste is expected to rise considerably as a result of COVID-19. As we celebrate Zero Waste Week, we focus on steps the brewing industry can take, and have taken, to reduce waste.
    • COVID-19 Mandatory contact tracing requirements imposed upon Scottish hospitality sector As of 14 August 2020, the Scottish hospitality industry is now required to collect visitor information to minimise the risk of the incidence and spread of coronavirus.
    • Food & Drink Last orders for Tied Pubs in Scotland Like much of the hospitality and food and drink industry, pubs have taken a major hit due to COVID-19. While introduced before lockdown restrictions hit, the Tied Pubs (Scotland) Bill may become a lifeline to some tied publicans in Scotland.
    • Food & Drink Beer, breweries and COVID-19 While the hospitality industry has been allowed to partially re-open (under exception of localised lockdown in Aberdeen), earlier drastic Government restrictions mean brewers across Scotland will require extraordinary measures to weather the COVID-19 pandemic.
