If a bar, nightclub or restaurant is ordered to close due to a liquor license violation, it could lead to a significant financial loss, even in the case of short closures. Owners of these establishments should be aware that they do not have to simply accept orders to close. Liquor license offences can be fought. The doors can stay open.
At Hicks Adams, our goal is to help owners of establishments with liquor licenses stay open. We want to minimize or eliminate the impact of liquor license offences of all types. With more than a century of combined experience on our side, we understand how to navigate through these often complex regulatory matters.
