Sector experts

We regularly buy and sell properties operated as H&L sites and companies that own such sites, so we know where issues particular to those properties and businesses can arise.

We have expertise in the brewing and drinks supply arena and can advise on licensing, health and safety, data protection and all other aspects of the regulatory regime. Our employment experts are often called upon to provide immediate and pragmatic advice on HR issues.

Our commercial team has vast experience of negotiating a wide range of contracts for H&L clients, including those relating to the supply of food and drinks, contract brewing and logistics, the development of bespoke software and the provision of other IT services.

We appreciate that the accessibility of our senior lawyers, even outside usual business hours and the speed of response to instructions are critically important factors in the fast-moving H&L world.
