Alcoholic Beverage Licensing & Regulatory Law

We routinely assist restaurants, nightclubs, package stores and hotel/resort owners with any and all alcoholic beverage licensing needs. Our knowledgeable attorney and staff handle all steps of this process from start to finish so you can focus on operating your business and promoting it while we take care of all your legal and licensing matters.

From finding a properly zoned location to identifying, purchasing and transferring my liquor license, The Tiller Law Group was able to meet all of my licensing needs, allowing me to serve alcohol on day one. They presented great liquor license financing options for me to consider and continue to offer prudent legal advice in my day-to-day operations.
