Orrick’s Sarah Fleury, Agnès Druot and Mélody Pagès co-authored an article in the French M&A magazine Fusions & Acquisitions regarding how commercial leases will be affected by the evolution of the hotel sector.

The evolution of the market and the diversification of the services have encouraged professionals to negotiate new aspects of leases to adapt to new issues.
