Licensing for Private Operators

Licensing for Private Operators

Whether you are an individual or a pub co, our licensing solicitors can provide you with a full range of licensing services

Very often the commercial viability of your business will be dependent on obtaining quick and pragmatic licensing advice.

We understand that applications, for example, for a new premises licence, for temporary event notices and for transferring premises licences are likely to be urgent. The priority for you as a private operator is to secure the premises licence you require at a minimum cost. We have very good relationships with the Licensing Authorities and Responsible Authorities and our approach to applications is to resolve any issues before the application is submitted. By doing so, we are able to ensure that the application proceeds without any unnecessary delays.
