Why do I need to employ a solicitor to apply for a Local Authority Licence?

The licensing industry has undergone substantial changes over the last decade following the implementation of the Licensing Act in 2003. Many more types of activity are now licensable under the Act including the sale and supply of hot food and drink after 11pm and the law is constantly changing.  Further changes have been, or are in the process of being, introduced by the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011.

It is therefore important that you seek professional advice at an early stage to make sure you apply for the correct licences and to make sure your business is protected.

Our Solicitors have a wealth of experience in Local Authority Licensing and can provide you with expert advice and guidance when preparing your application for premises and personal licences, which will save you unnecessary costs and time.
