As an alcohol licensing solicitor with over 9 years’ experience, Steve can help solve any licensing issue that a business may be facing. From obtaining new premises licenses and variations through to challenging reviews and appearing at licensing hearings.
Everything Steve suggests is not just based on knowledge of licensing laws. It is also based upon his first-hand experience of how the various licensing authorities and police forces like to work. Or to put it another way, he knows what they like, what they don’t like and what actions will likely get the results you want.
Steve tends to help small to medium sized pubs, restaurants and retail operators. And by small-to-medium, this means operators running from one to around twenty sites. He is also known to passionately protect those who operate many sites.
And as a result of working with business owners – many of whom are risking their own money – Steve has developed a very realistic approach to costs, including the most practical options to take.
So no matter how many licensed premises an operator is running or what type of operations they have, Steve can help them solve any licensing problem that they are facing.

• Obtaining and varying premises licenses
