Alcohol and entertainment licensing can be difficult to navigate on your own. We have considerable experience in providing legal advice and representation to premises licence holders in the leisure sector.

You, Licensing (Alcohol and Entertainment)
& Ince, in any case

We act for hotels, restaurants, bars, pubs, clubs, stately homes, off licences, late-night takeaways, and visitor centres to name a few, and have obtained premises licences for large outdoor music festivals and even for a former battleship.

We advise landlords and investors on all licensing and regulatory issues, and appear regularly before licensing committees, particularly in London. We defend licence holders in licensing reviews and criminal proceedings, conduct appeals, and engage in leisure industry liaison groups. We recognise the importance of establishing good business relationships and work closely with other professionals such as architects and surveyors to ensure that a project meets licensing requirements.

A straightforward application is likely to take approximately 5 to 6 weeks to complete and a more complex application where a hearing is necessary will take approximately 8 to 15 weeks from instruction to conclusion. This is dependent upon the amount of pre-application work necessary and when a hearing is listed.
