Providing Advice and Representation Nationwide
As licensing solicitors, we understand that a licence is an essential part of your business, whether you need a licence for serving alcohol, providing late night hot refreshments, showing live entertainment, playing music or films in your establishment. Cunninghams Draycott Browne offer a specialist service using dedicated experts in all types of licence issues.
We provide advice and assistance in the licence application procedure to ensure that it is right first time. Incorrect or incomplete applications lead to costly amendments to your licence or worse if you are found to be operating outside the terms of your licence. Should your licence be subject to a review, suspension or revocation due to a complaint, our specialist team will find a resolution. If your premises are at risk of closure by the police following an incident of crime or disorder, you may find yourself at a disadvantage if you have not sought legal advice. We have a wealth of experience in court advocacy and procedure, both in the Magistrates and Crown Court and will prepare your case should you wish to appeal against the decision of the local authority.
As part of our licence renewal service we provide a reminder service when your licence is to be renewed. It is important that any renewal requests are made within the time scale allowed by the Secretary of State or you may need to re-apply incurring a further fee.
Our specialist team have the resources to represent clients nationally. We are familiar with all aspects of licensing laws and have experience of all courts in England and Wales. We provide a cost effective service tailored to your specific needs, whether that be applying for a licence, representation at a hearing or renewal
