Else Solicitors is proud of its expertise and long-standing relationships with clients in the licensed and hospitality sector.
The firm acts for major UK brewing companies and pub companies as well as SMEs and individuals in the sector.
These connections leave us ideally placed to provide specialist advice and expert guidance on trade issues such as:
- Sales and purchases.
- Employment law.
- Statutory regulations.
- All property-related issues.
- Disputes and debt recovery.
We are recognised as professionals who understand pub companies and the brewery trade and who can provide realistic and practical advice whatever the issues or difficulties.
We believe in forging long-term partnerships with our clients and continue to offer ongoing support and advice to many companies and individuals within the licensed trade as their businesses grow and develop.
If you are looking to buy a freehold, leasehold or tenanted pub we can act for you and help you understand your legal obligations to be appropriately licensed for the hours you are open and serving, for entertainment and for health and safety including regulations concerned with the preparation and serving of food.
In cases such as an escalating dispute, or an issue with debts, we always keep a focus on the commercial objectives. We will make sure you always understand the risks and implications of alternative courses of action and help you choose the option that achieves the outcome you desire, while keeping a close eye on both time-scales and costs.
Our advice will always be focused on achieving the best outcome for you – whether that is through mediation, an out-of-court settlement or litigation.
