Licensing Disputes

If your business operates under a licence from a local authority, and you are having difficulties with conditions or objections, then Blacks Solicitors’ expert Commercial Dispute Resolution team can help.

All premises at which alcohol is supplied, entertainment is provided, or hot food is sold after certain hours, must obtain a Premises Licence under the Licensing Act 2003.

In addition, the person managing the premises now requires a Personal Licence and a designated Premises Supervisor must be named.

Under the 2003 Act it has become increasingly important to consider the measures you will take to promote the licensing objectives, which are centred on public order and the prevention of crime.

Private individuals, local businesses, and authorities (such as the police) also now have the right to object to a Premises Licence, which could lead to your Licence being revoked.

If there are objections to a new or existing Licence, we can assist you in preparing an effective response and can represent you at any hearing.

 

For more information about how we can help, or for a free no obligation discussion, please email or call Blacks’ Commercial Dispute Resolution team today on 0113 207 0000.

  • It has been a hard two years in terms of money on our part and effort on your part. One thing that sustained us was your indefatigable energy and skills in confronting a determined organisation who did not listen to reason.

  • Luke was very personable, professional, measured and met all our expectations. The strategy and tactics he deployed from day one were carefully thought out. He gave us clear and honest advice throughout and informed us of the options available to us at each stage of the litigation. He was able to deliver his “killer blow” at the right time which caused the opponents to come to the table and do a deal.  I would have no hesitation recommending him or using him, and Blacks, should the need ever arise again.

  • As always Luke was at once incisive, caring and comprehensive in providing a legal solution in the most concise and cost-efficient way possible. He is a man of great integrity, sincerity and poise. In my experience, he acts in his client’s best interests always. My go to lawyer.
