Our Leisure team offers a top tier legal service to clients operating within the leisure industry. The team has been ranked number one for the last six years by both Chambers UK and Legal 500, the leading guides to the legal profession.

Our lawyers are immersed in the leisure sector and many of our lawyers have either been on secondment or have worked with many of the leading leisure operators prior to joining Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner.

Our lawyers have a particular specialisation in the Pubs, Clubs and Restaurants sector and have been advising clients within these disciplines for many years, during which time we have advised the operators themselves, in addition to developers and banks lending to the industry.

We have established and developed long term relationships with our clients, which enable us to understand the nature of their business and their requirements. Our lawyers offer the full range of legal services to operators within the pubs, clubs and restaurant arenas, and in particular have notable strength in real estate, planning, finance, commercial contracts, health and safety, food safety and licensing.

Our team has worked on some of the industry’s largest, most original and high profile deals and we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of change, innovation and growth in the sector.

Our team is entrepreneurial team. Our ability to adapt to the market conditions has kept Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner as the go-to firm, for clients operating within the pubs, clubs and restaurants sector.

We have seen an increase in insolvency and restructuring advice, real estate workouts and private equity investments into distressed portfolios. Our ability to advise on the full range of legal services and our seamless multi-disciplinary approach has kept us as the number one firm for clients operating within this sector.
