BLP advises HIG Capital on sale of Hilton Doubletree Docklands
International law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) has advised HIG Capital (HIG) on the sale of the Luxembourg companies owning and operating the Hilton Doubletree Docklands to a fund managed by Hong Kong-based Junson Capital.
BLP originally acted for HIG on its purchase of the hotel (through a Dutch company) in 2014 and subsequently the hive-up of the Property and the Hotel Management Agreement with Hilton to convert the hotel into the Doubletree brand.
Partner and Head of Real Estate, Chris de Pury and Partner, Adam Bogdanor led a multi-disciplinary team comprising Laura Patao-Caminas, Patrick Lilly, Laura Wild, Marie-Claire Lowry and Ben Sutton, Elizabeth Bradley and Andy West.
Adam Bogdanor added: “This is one of the few completed hotel disposals in London since the Brexit referendum. Our multi-disciplinary team helped ensure a successful outcome in the sale of this operating hotel business, which has its own Thames Clipper ferry stop.”
