Liquor Licensing

We advise on a broad range of liquor licensing matters including the preparation of applications for various liquor licences, attendance at disputed hearings before the relevant liquor and gambling authorities and in appeals to the higher tribunals.

We have extensive experience in relation to the sale and acquisition of hotels and other licensed premises, attending to due diligence appraisals, contract documentation and completion of all documentation necessary to effect transfers and personnel approvals.

We regularly provide compliance and risk management advice associated with sales and the service of alcohol. Our national capability allows us to provide support from cross disciplinary teams in an efficient and commercial manner.
