Liquor License and Hospitality Industry Compliance
Most owners of bars, concert venues, clubs, and restaurants need a liquor license to serve beer, liquor, and wine on their premises. There are strict requirements and permits that must be sought from federal, state, and local authorities before the owners of these businesses can legally sell alcohol to the public. Sometimes, hospitality business owners have obligations to seek permits from the government for special events and festivals. Additionally, breweries, distilleries, and wineries have heightened licensing obligations. In limited circumstances, hospitality business owners and their employees may face criminal charges for underage alcohol sales, false identification, among other criminal offenses.
We take the stress out of operating a business within the hospitality industry. Hospitality industry businesses should put their focus on maximizing their potential, and let us take care of the legal and administrative work. We have experience zealously representing clients before the Ohio Division of Liquor Control and we handle everything from new liquor license applications and transfers, to defending violations.
