Licensing in Regional Bar
Kings Chambers is home to a 'knowledgeable licensing team with strength in depth' instructed in a wide range of matters. Sarah Clover is particularly active in alcohol licensing matters, with recent instructions also covering the fields of taxi licensing, and licensing applications for a new lap-dancing venue in central Birmingham; a case which also involved Leo Charalambides representing the Colmore Business Improvement District. Ben Williams is another key name within the set, with a practice that focuses heavily on taxi licensing matters, generally acting for local authorities.
