Unfortunately disputes occur in all businesses. When they do we can provide you with clear advice on where you stand and what remedies are available to you

Good licensing advice is a pre-requisite to the effective running of business in the leisure sector.  The last decade has seen the introduction of new regimes in the form of the Licensing Act 2003 and the Gambling Act 2005. The Consumer Credit Acts regulate the provision of credit and the supply of goods on hire to consumers.  We recognise that commercial operators need effective practical advice to ensure that they avoid falling foul of the legislation.

We frequently advise and act for clients in making applications, transferring licences following an acquisition, on review hearings, appeals and applying to vary or amend existing licences.  In the current climate, if businesses facing insolvency are to survive, clients must act quickly to protect their alcohol licences.
