Liquor Control Board Licensing

PA Liquor Law

Planning, organizing, and opening a new business requires a certain amount of fortitude. If you have a bar, restaurant, beer distribution store, vineyard, brewery, or distillery that requires a liquor license, the process becomes even more complex.

Pennsylvania requires multiple steps to obtain that license, and our attorneys can guide you through the entire process, which includes:

  • Finding available licenses
  • Drafting purchase documents
  • Coordinating the license transfer journey, from application through acceptance

Once you’ve obtained the license, you’ll need to ensure your business remains compliant with the law. We also represent license holders appealing non-renewals or appearing at violation hearings before hearing examiners and administrative law judges of the Liquor Control Board.

Our other services include liquor license:

  • Acquisitions
  • Citation defense
  • Non-renewal defense
  • Renewals
  • Transfers
