The Ashurst team was led by partners Peter Junghänel and Lars Jessen. Peter and Lars were assisted partners Klaus Herkenroth, John Stawyskyj, and Vivian Chang.


Commenting on the transaction, Ashurst’s managing partner in Asia, Matthew Bubb, said:


“We have seen substantial interest from Asian-based investors over the past 12 to 18 months in commercial and hospitality related real estate assets in both Europe and Australia. We are delighted to have advised Far East Hospitality on this significant transaction and to continue to support our Asian clients by being able to offer seamless advice globally as they expand their businesses offshore.”
