Flint Bishop has been appointed the sole provider of licensing advice for all Star Pubs and Bars (leased pub business of Heineken).
Flint Bishop already provide legal advice to part of the brewer’s leased pub estate, but this decision gives us the entire Star Pubs and Bars estate; some 1,200 licensed premises throughout the UK.
The move follows a review by Heineken of its UK legal panel, which saw global law firm DLA Piper appointed as principal legal advisor to Heineken in the UK. However, at the request of Heineken, Flint Bishop Solicitors was retained to carry out licensing services under the management of DLA Piper.
Commenting on the appointment, Andrew Cochrane, said:
“Star Pubs and Bars are a fantastic company and we are delighted to secure this appointment. This will see a significant increase in the amount of work we do for Star Pubs and Bars across the UK”.
The team will draw on its extensive experience in licensing law, developed from working with a wide portfolio of other high profile licensing clients.
