Liquor Licensing & Permitting
One of the most difficult aspects of opening a restaurant, hotel, bar, club, brewery, package store or other business in the hospitality industry is obtaining proper permitting, specifically food, alcohol and entertainment licenses. As a Boston liquor license lawyer, I guide clients through the entire process, including the community outreach and government relations process, lease and asset purchase agreement negotiations, completion of the often-tedious license applications, representation of businesses before local and state licensing authorities for both transactional and disciplinary proceedings, and advising clients on compliance with restaurant and alcohol laws in Massachusetts.
Alcohol license regulations in Massachusetts have a tendency to be complicated, making licenses increasingly difficult to obtain. Having a knowledgeable attorney who can effectively guide you through the legal process is crucial to prevent costly missteps and save you valuable time and money.
