We have expertise in advising clients across the leisure and licensed sector on a wide range of legal matters.
Our team works closely with pub, bar, restaurant and other outlets to obtain all the necessary licences required to trade and to deal with any objections raised by third parties. We also help clients to alter the premises licence if the hours or activities are changing or the layout is being amended and to transfer the licence on sale of a business.
The team has additional expertise in advising clients on how to obtain a licence to bet or gamble (whether it be from a shop or online) and work with the local authorities or Gambling Commission as appropriate. Once licensed, it is important to ensure the appropriate terms and conditions are drafted and put in place.
We work closely with our property team as many of our clients require expertise in both these disciplines. Our property practice has extensive experience of working on leisure related developments be they conversions of existing units or new build premises.
The team has developed good links with other professionals in the leisure and licensed trade generally and holiday and home park sector (see our Holiday and Homes Park page) in particular including funders, accountants and agents which has added real value to clients.
