On Thursday, October 15, 2105, the New York State Liquor Authority adopted 12 new reforms and changes intended to benefit alcohol retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers. I was at the meeting (for a client on another matter), and it was a lot of fun...but I digress.
The changes are effective immediately. Here they are:
p.s Here is what I do regularly for clients, besides liquor license applications:
** Brokering the Sale of Businesses: I am a NY state licensed real estate broker, and can help you or a client buy or sell a business using my industry contracts, knowledge, and experience.
** Purchase & Sale of Restaurants, Bars, Clubs, and other hospitality businesses. This usually involves asset sales agreements, leases or lease assignments, liquor licenses, and forming corporations.
** Partnership Agreements and Disagreements: Shareholder agreements and fights involving business holding liquor licenses can sometime be very different exactly because of the liquor license angle. If this is something I can help with, please let me know.
** SLA investigations and hearings. If you or a client have a problem with the SLA, I can help either resolve it or handle the enforcement hearing.
** Distillers, Winemakers, and Brewers. Making and selling your own alcohol is an incredible experience, but the legalities are complicated and require specialized legal advice. I work well with business and corporate lawyers to help their clients get what they need.
Hopefully, this helps you understand what I can do for your or your clients. If you want to talk, please call or email me.
