The Global Finance group at Sidley regularly represents borrowers, agents and lenders in a variety of gaming, leisure and hospitality financings. We have structured, documented and completed secured and unsecured financings involving gaming equipment manufacturers and distributors, land-based casinos, riverboat-based casinos, racetracks, video gambling facilities, internet gaming sites, sports-related betting facilities and lotteries. Sidley has worked with various parties in connection with timeshare, resort and hotel-related financings. In order to provide our clients with comprehensive advice in these areas, the Global Finance group routinely works with other practice teams at Sidley, including those covering tax, regulatory, licensing, employment, general corporate, mergers and acquisitions and restructuring. Sidley counsels clients about a wide range of issues arising in these areas, from zoning, to suitability, to collateral limitations. More information about our capabilities in these areas may be found under our website’s industry profiles for Sports, Hospitality, and Media and Entertainment.
