Practice Areas

After qualifying as a solicitor in 1996, Graeme developed advocacy skills as a specialist in criminal law. His experience as a magistrates’ court advocate led to a move to practising licensing law, which saw him join Poppleston Allen as a solicitor in February 2001, making partner and head of regulatory crime in April 2005. Focus is on crimes ancillary to licensing, covering: serving alcohol (underage sales and drunkenness); health and safety; food safety; and noise nuisance.

Graeme advises a diverse client base spread across the whole of England and Wales and has developed a niche for working with restaurant and pub chains. For example his national restaurant clients include: PizzaExpress, Yo!, Ask Italian, Five Guys, Zizzi, and Pho.

He is currently legal advisor to the UKHospitality and BBPA in respect of their challenge to proposed increases in the PPL tariffs.
