Licensed Premises, Public Houses & Clubs

When you operate in the licensed trades, you’ll find you need a very specialist level of expertise when it comes to property and legal matters. At Sedgwick legal we’ve developed a highly specialised knowledge base in this complex area of law, together with a comprehensive understanding of the commercial dynamics of the hospitality industry.

Sedgwick Legal has been taking care of businesses and commercial organisations across the North West for 50 years. During this time we’ve acquired extensive experience in the procurement, acquisition and disposal of licensed premises. Acting for private buyers, sellers and landlords of public houses, members’ clubs, nightclubs and restaurants, as well as directly with breweries, our negotiating skills have become well honed. 

Commercially astute advice, excellent local knowledge

Getting it right with the property element of any venture in the licensed hospitality sector is vital to its success. The fact we know the North West so well, and have sound knowledge of the types of investment that thrive in the region, means you can count on our advice as being commercial astute.

If you’re looking to invest in or dispose of licensed premises, we’ll work closely with you to strategically evaluate your options before assisting with all the negotiations surrounding the acquisition or offloading of property. That way you’ll be able to enjoy the most beneficial terms. This all comes after we’ve taken good time to get to know you, so we’re able to focus fully on meeting your goals for both the short and long term.

Strategic thinking

If you’re looking to exit from a contract, we’ll work with you to develop a cost effective strategy that puts you in an advantageous position and assists you in meeting any personal ambitions. And if you’re considering taking on or granting a licensed premises lease, we’ll bring in our negotiating skills once again to make sure everything works in your best interests. 

Guidance through ALL areas of commercial law

Something else that’s beneficial about working with Sedgwick Legal is the fact you have access to all-inclusive advice courtesy of a close-working team of commercial legal specialists. Our clients in the licensed sector regularly call upon our expertise to assist with an array of matters. From the particular employment related issues that arise when starting up and running licensed premises, or selling or closing a business, to guiding you through licensing legislation and representing you should anything crop up with the local authority licensing committee, all the expertise you need is right here.

If you are looking for assistance with any licensed premises matter, we’d welcome the opportunity to help. You can give us a call, or drop in to see us in our Middleton offices: you’re always welcome and we look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
