  • Alcohol and premises licencing, including defending premises licences when subject to review
  • Food safety, weights and measures and trading standards prosecutions
  • Company and business sales and purchases
  • Distribution and supply agreements
  • Terms of Business and consumer regulations
  • Corporate restructuring, joint ventures, and funding arrangements
  • Branding and intellectual property
  • Commercial property acquisitions and sales
