Hotels, Resorts and Casinos
Our firm has advised large international hotel chains that have set up in Chile, not only on how to establish themselves in the country and operate their establishments directly on a day-to-day basis, but also regarding all their financial and tax issues, and particularly regarding negotiations with third parties related to operation, administration and franchise agreements. We also see the day-to-day operation of hotels in all areas, such as labor, litigation, commercial, regulatory and operational matters.
We have represented a significant number of hotels in Chile regarding copyright in relation to musical and audiovisual reproductions, among others.
In addition, since the entry into force of the Gambling Law (Ley de Casino de Juegos), we have advised multiple local and foreign investors who have participated in the different licensing processes of casinos, as well as in the application and/or acquisition of licenses to operate casinos, collaborating in the submittal of information and the preparation of comprehensive projects before the administrative authority, in addition to negotiations with investors, suppliers and local partners (joint ventures). Additionally, we have advised casinos on purchase and merger negotiations, contracts with hotel chains, restaurant operation and other contracts and services.
