Resorts and Hospitality

With offices across the Mountain West, we have long been involved in hotel, ski area, and destination resort development projects.

Aspen, Boulder, Denver, Jackson Hole, Reno, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City—the most important resort and recreation markets in the region. We’re in all of them, and we’ve been involved in the industry since our founding. 

Building, owning, operating, and thriving in hospitality, resort, or leisure businesses requires a combination of business acumen, creativity, and sophisticated legal strategy. Whether planning, developing, or operating a destination or mixed-use resort, hotel, or ski area, our team is there at every stage. From financing to negotiating contracts and management agreements, to resolving disputes, we find solutions. 

Over many decades working in resort locations, we know the industry-specific regulations and codes that apply to development projects near and in mountain towns and regularly appear before local planning and zoning commissions. Knowledge of the communities, decision-makers, and dynamics at play is what most often influences the outcome of a development strategy.
