Our Experience

We know the world of licensing inside out. Not only are we ranked tier 1 by the Legal 500, we are proud to say that our team, led by Heath Thomas – an acknowledged leader in the field – includes former local authority solicitors and licensing officers with decades of experience.

We’ve represented clients from across the country in high-profile cases that could have resulted in serious business and personal implications for our clients and their staff, and have ensured that businesses can still trade despite being at risk of having their licenses revoked.
