Our licensing solicitors keep your licensed premises open

We understand the law, your business and the markets in which you operate. And we also know that keeping your premises open and trading is critical to your business.

One of the problems you face is ensuring your premises are correctly licensed. This can be a costly and timely exercise when you could focus your resources on the other important issues you face.

That is why the likes of Marston’s, Heineken UK and Macdonald Hotels turn to us when they need help with their licensing work. We’ve developed excellent relationships with Local Authorities and Police Forces across the country which helps build bridges in difficult situations. This means we “nip-issues-in-the-bud” and in over 22 years we have never permanently lost a licence, no matter how serious the situation.

We stay on top of the game through training and education. This means we give you advice on new legislation and the steps you’ll need to take to protect your position.

To underline this, most of our staff hold both the Personal Licence and the British Institute of Innkeeping’s Designated Premises Supervisor Qualification – so we can see the situation from both sides of the bar. In addition to this, all our solicitors are members of the Institute of Licensing and many are holders of the Scottish Personal Licence Qualification.

Our Licensing advice covers:

  • Alcohol and entertainment licensing
  • Betting and gaming
  • Regulatory advice and prosecutions
  • Reviews and enforcement
  • Licensing training

Licensing is such a successful area of law for us, we have built our own licensing specific website where you can read about our full list of services, click here to visit the site.
