Alcohol Licensing

Many business plans and models rely upon the sale of alcohol.  In fact, for a variety of businesses, the sale of alcohol might not only be tangential to the business but essential to it but before alcohol can be sold, a business must acquire a licence.  This is a highly regulated area which can sometimes lead to protracted disputes which cause delays and complications.  As such, before proceeding it is often advisable to seek advice on the best way to proceed at the earliest opportunity.  This is the case regardless of whether you are a business acquiring your first alcohol licence or you have applied for one previously.  You may also require advice if you are an interested third party and, upon becoming aware of an application for an alcohol licence, you have concerns or objections which you wish to raise.

How can we help you?

We are able to guide you through the application process for licences, such as a new premises licence, a variation to that licence or dealing with an objection to an application for a licence.  We will provide you with advice and assistance regarding the best way to proceed and give you details of any strengths or weaknesses of the application brought or in respect of any objection to such an application for an application licence.

If the process does not proceed as you had hoped, or the application is somehow objectionable, our team of solicitors are on hand to assist you in navigating those difficulties and provide you with the most appropriate advice to meet your objectives.
