Hotel management agreements can be notoriously one-sided when presented to owners by the biggest international hotel groups. There are often quite complex suites of ancillary contracts which are relevant to the relationship between owner and operator.
This seminar will explore how that suite of contracts should be approached and key considerations that lawyers acting for owners should keep in mind when negotiating with international hoteliers.
Abdulhaq Mohammed is a partner at Trowers & Hamlins and focuses on PPP (“public-private partnerships”) and concession arrangements relating to social and transport-related infrastructure, cross-border real estate investment, urban development and strategic legal advice. Much of the cross-border investment work he advises on is Islamic-financed and Abdulhaq has familiarity with key Islamic finance structures used for investment and debt financing. He is often instructed by clients to provide guidance on matters of strategic importance and is experienced in leading large teams on complicated, cross-border deals.
He has held several senior management positions within his firm. Until September 2021, he was the firm's International Managing Partner, a position he stepped down from so that he could take on his new role leading their strategy for growth in the ASEAN region from their regional hub in Malaysia. He also was a member of his firm's management board for six years from 2015 onwards. He is regularly consulted by clients on matters of strategic importance.
