    Lifestyle & Leisure Legal Services

The modern consumer places more importance than ever before on physical and mental wellbeing, which makes lifestyle and leisure an exciting area of growth and innovation.

The sector is accompanied by a unique set of challenges, along with opportunities, including the pressure to adapt to the different ways in which consumers want to be served, which requires both perception and flexibility. We can support the development of your strategic offering; including finetuning it to reflect market trends towards increased personalisation, such as virtual workouts and the greater use of technology to execute this, and experiential travel.

We have developed significant expertise from our long history of working with businesses in this sector and our international team can help you attract a new generation of customers and succeed in new markets and geographies.

If you would like to talk to our team about any issues or opportunities that your business is facing, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


Customer attitudes have changed the hotel sector, with visitors increasingly expecting a tailored, personalised experience. Technology has and will continue to play a critical role in the function of this sector in the future, as the growth of ‘Bleisure’ travel and big data reinforces the necessity for hotels to be ‘smart’ and highly interconnected.

We can support you from build to branding, with a key focus on the UK and the Middle East.


The wellness industry is booming as consumers continue to spend more on products that enhance and improve their health, fitness, nutrition, sleep, appearance, and mindfulness. Our team offers a comprehensive legal service to both investors and business owners within the wellness sector. We support a range of clients, from brand new technology start-ups to growing and established gyms, fitness brands and leisure centres, offering legal advice tailored to their unique business ethos.

Membership Clubs

Private membership clubs offer insiders access to various targeted programmes and hangouts, workspaces, restaurants and bars, spas and health sanctuaries, music venues and more.

Whilst each organisation has its own niche, the number of clubs cropping up in recent years has ramped up competition amongst them all. In this increasingly saturated market, operators are faced with the difficult task of maintaining the loyalty of their members whilst balancing changes to the regulatory frameworks that keep these members safe.

We understand the unique set of challenges that you face, and our team are at  hand to help you navigate and overcome them. We have advised private members clubs across a full range of legal issues, from corporate M&A and investment, data protection and privacy to supporting on niche commercial arrangements for policies to specific rules for memberships. The work we do is always treated with the highest degree of confidentiality, and our advice is consistently tailored to ensure that your strategic and commercial goals are fulfilled.
