Washington and Oregon are home to some of the best wineries, breweries, cideries, and distilleries in the world. The proliferation of these businesses creates many great beverages for consumers in the region — and around the world — but it also creates a significant number of challenges.
Much like the cannabis industry, the alcohol beverage industry requires more than just an understanding of the applicable laws and regulations. You need experienced legal counsel to guide you through this complex, regulated industry. It also requires an ongoing relationship with the state regulators and personnel who oversee the laws and regulations across the industry.
There are unique legal issues that can arise in the restaurant and bar industries on a variety of issues. We can help owners establish your businesses, maintain your licenses, and minimize your legal risks. We can also help with acquiring and selling restaurants and bars, as well as the accompanying liquor licenses.
No matter what aspect of the industry you’re involved with, you’ll need representation at the state or federal levels, and need assistance to resolve legal and regulatory issues at the local level. Contact us today and let us guide you through the laws and regulations.
