Counsel to Hospitality Clients on All Aspects of New York State Liquor Licensing

Hodgson Russ has represented numerous hospitality, entertainment, and sports clients, including restaurants, bars, hotels, sports arenas, ski resorts, golf course clubhouses, and other venues that serve or want to serve alcohol, on all aspects of New York State liquor licensing. Our attorneys understand the legal, business, and practical issues involved with the technical NYS legal regime governing the sale of alcohol and, more importantly, how to avoid the potential pitfalls and roadblocks a client risks encountering when dealing with the New York State Liquor Authority. With an eye toward obtaining a license efficiently so as not to impede business objectives, our attorneys counsel clients on the types of liquor licenses they require, new application submissions, remedying suspended and disapproved applications, license renewals, corporate changes, license alterations, and additional bar applications. Whether a client is applying for a full on-premises liquor license, a temporary/special event catering permit, or an outdoor patio approval, Hodgson Russ has the experience to deliver the desired results.
