Poppleston Allen

Poppleston Allen fields a ‘pre-eminent licensing practice’ that stands out for providing ‘knowledge in the field that is second to none’ and for its ‘faultless help and support’. The boutique firm has an exceedingly deep bench: key figures include managing partner Jonathan Smith who ‘is exceptionally hard-working, highly experienced and determined to succeed on all levels’; Lisa Sharkey, who ‘is thorough and dedicated to her clients’; the ‘highly personable’ and ‘strategic’ Graeme Cushion, who demonstrates ‘great determination to succeed for his client’; Andy Grimsey , whose ‘attention to detail is equaled by the energy in his willingness to help’; and James Anderson. The practice recently handled due diligence for Ten Entertainment Group in preparation for the client’s planned flotation on the stock market, which involved reviewing all licences and reporting full disclosure for each going back over four years. It also advised Sofitel on a new premises licence for a new hotel with a  restaurant and bar in a heritage site building in Leicester Square within the jurisdiction of a cumulative impact zone, involving a hearing before Westminter City Council’s licensing committee in which Sharkey carried out her own advocacy and successfully obtained new licences for the client. PizzaExpress, Azzuri Group and Carluccio’s are also clients.
