Whether you are the general counsel of a national restaurant chain, the CEO of a regional hotel chain, a local caterer trying to expand your business, or an aspiring entrepreneur contemplating importing wine and setting up a wholesale network, you all have one thing in common – the need to legally buy and sell alcoholic beverages. The ability to traffic in alcoholic beverages is the lifeblood of your business and the inability to do so would be crippling. With each state, and the federal government, having its own unique set of alcoholic beverage control laws, many of which are antiquated and out of touch with modern business practices, the prospect of navigating through them can be daunting.

The Skene Law Firm can provide comprehensive solutions to your alcoholic beverage regulatory and compliance needs on an international, national, regional, or local basis in the following areas.
