Keeping premises open
We understand the law, your business and the markets in which you operate. 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 in running your business.
To help you with this, our innovative approach to managing your licensing work will:
- improve your internal processes
- save you time
- significantly reduce your legal costs
The quality of advice we give to clients and the innovative ways in which we deliver it has won us many awards and accreditations.
That’s why the likes of Marston’s, Heineken UK and Macdonald Hotels turn to us when they need help with their licensing work.
Commercial advice – exceptional service – experienced and knowledgeable team
We’ve developed excellent relations 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 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.
