Leisure, Tourism and Sport
Landmark’s advisory and litigation practice has been deeply interwoven with the worlds of leisure, tourism and sport for many years. Our ability to offer an integrated service, covering planning, regulatory and real property litigation enables us to provide solutions across the sector.
Barristers regularly advise and represent parties working in the hotel, restaurant, entertainment, theatre and cinema world. We have a particularly strong track record in mixed-use developments but are also associated with some of the major brands delivering standalone facilities. Our expertise in the planning stages stretches from advice on development strategies across the UK to promoting (and resisting) contentious leisure tourism and sport proposals through application, appeal and High Court stages. We advise and represent central and local government, regulators,
Notable examples of stadia or events planning on which our barristers have advised include the 2012 Olympics, Wembley Stadium, the Emirates Stadium, and White Hart Lane. Regeneration schemes for leisure and tourism are also a key strength, with recent experience including Pinewood Studios, Ealing Filmworks, Legoland and many schemes involving the tourism potential of seaside towns and National Trust and other heritage assets.
Barristers are able to advise and handle disputes relating to the regulatory and public law side of the sector. Our public law team guide developers and regulators through the full range of challenges including public procurement, environmental regulation, and building control issues.
Our property team is able to assist with a full range of advice on contractual issues, easements, covenants, and land deals. The advisory side is backed up by a powerful litigation track record.
