  • variation applications amending an existing premises licence
  • transfer applications to transfer an existing premises licence
  • applications for temporary event notices
  • bringing or defending of licensing prosecutions
  • general advice on the offences under the Licensing Act 2003 (for example: the duties of a designated premises supervisor, the obligations of a licensee and children and alcohol)

Civil Marriage Licences and Gaming Law

In addition to our expertise in relation to alcohol licensing, and the provision of regulated entertainment & late night refreshment under the 2003 Act, we can also advise on other licensing matters that may affect you, including civil marriage licences and gaming law.
