GrayRobinson’s Nationwide Alcohol Industry Team combines the talents of experienced attorneys who specialize in the laws governing the alcohol industry with seasoned former federal and state alcohol regulators. The legal acumen of the former, combined with the enforcement knowledge, experience and contacts of the latter, provide our clients with a collection of talent to solve problems and achieve objectives. The Team includes experienced licensing specialists who provide valuable and effective service while emphasizing efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
Working together, our attorneys and professionals provide expertise in the applicable national, federal, provincial, state and local laws that govern the production, importation, distribution, promotion and sale of alcohol beverages. We serve all segments (beer, wine and distilled spirits) and all tiers (manufacturers/importers, wholesale distributors and retailers) of the alcohol industry.
Our Nationwide Alcohol Industry Team also specializes in licensure and compliance responsibilities for Mergers & Acquisitions and other multi-location projects. Our experience in this area includes recent work migrating tens of thousands of alcohol beverage licenses and related permits for the largest merger transaction ever undertaken in America involving licensed businesses.
We also provide guidance on advertising and marketing, including utilization of Social Media and other new technology platforms for promoting alcohol beverages.
