How well do you know the liquor laws for New York State? Do you know the type of license you will need? What are the costs involved? Can you apply for a liquor license on your own?
Obtaining a liquor license in New York State can be a lengthy and challenging process, particularly without the assistance of an experienced attorney. Depending on the nature of your business and the type of license you are seeking, you may need approvals from federal, state and local government agencies before you can open your doors. SRDD Law has extensive experience representing bars, restaurants, hotels, nightclubs, liquor stores, golf courses, catering halls, taverns, breweries, cideries, wineries, and numerous other types of establishments. SRDD Law helps clients accurately and precisely navigate through the complexities of laws and regulations and avoid pitfalls at each stage of the licensing process. Without the proper legal representation, your application can be delayed or rejected, which will stall or entirely prevent your opening or expansion, and ultimately will cost you money.

After you have been issued your license, it is important to continue to comply with the rules of the New York State Liquor Authority in your business operations. Failure to adhere to its guidelines can lead to citations and fines, and even possible revocation of your liquor license.
