Who We Are Makes Us Different.

Years of in-house experience at some of the largest, most innovative alcohol beverage companies means that we bring a commercial point-of-view and experience that’s as valuable as our legal advice.

Solutions that Work for You

We know that the hourly billing model from traditional law firms misaligns the incentives between the lawyer and the client. We offer subscriptions and alternative fee arrangements, as well as the traditional hourly model, to give our clients peace of mind, budget certainty, and efficient legal counsel and compliance support. Music to your ears!

A Familiar Face

We know that nobody really looks forward to sitting down to discuss how laws and regulations impact your plans to grow your beverage business. You’d rather be brewing, fermenting, distilling, blending, selling or serving! We can honestly say that because of who we are, our experience, and the way we speak your language, you might actually look forward to our conversations. Maybe.

How We Can Help

We advise businesses of all sizes – from start-up brands to international public companies – and all types – manufacturers, importers, retailers, and marketing companies – on all manner of alc-bev and general legal and compliance matters. Being a small company in need of fractional general counsel, or a large global player looking for regulatory or distribution counsel or compliance support, we take pride in providing the best all-around legal and compliance service within our area of expertise.
