St John's ChambersRoy Light is highly active in licensing matters, acting for the trade as well as local authorities in relation to alcohol, taxi, and private hire vehicle licensing matters. Of recent note, Professor Light acted for an off-license, which had faced multiple previous reviews for serving alcohol to minors in a licensing review following an incident in which the shopkeeper assaulted a customer with a claw hammer and, in addition, weapons including a samurai sword were found behind the counter. Light secured the continuation of the licence.
