The laws regulating liquor manufacturers, distributors and sellers are unique compared to other types of businesses. We counsel clients on legal issues arising among the “three tiers” of liquor businesses: suppliers, distributors and retailers. These are known as “tied house” rules, which are particularly important in evaluating marketing and promotional matters between suppliers and retailers.
We have assisted businesses successfully introduce alcohol into their existing locations to add a new revenue stream. With alcohol, what may seem like a common sense business practice in another field may inadvertently cause serious problems for a regulated business. We can counsel on all aspects of alcoholic beverage law compliance.
