Liquor Licensing

Liquor Licensing has undergone arguably the most significant change in its history with the introduction of the Licensing Scotland Act 2005. With more legislation in the pipeline there has never been more need to have an expert licensed trade lawyer at your side. With over 20 years experience in the licensing sector our team has built an enviable reputation in liquor licensing and the buying, selling and leasing of licensed premises across Scotland.

Our client base includes national pubcos, family businesses, Scottish entrepreneurs and new trade entrants. We represent top city nightclubs, iconic highland hotels and traditional community pubs and village inns. Appearing at Licensing Boards across the country, our clients engage us to apply for new Premises or Personal Licences, longer trading hours, to defend Review Hearings and to get them occasional licences for music festivals and special events.

Over the years we have forged close and trusted relationships with other experts in the licensed trade. We are happy to recommend architects, surveyors and business selling agents to help you build your team of advisers around you.
