Andrew Wong - Keystone Law

Within: Licensing

Keystone Law's licensing practice has developed significantly since the arrival of Andrew Wong  and Gareth Hughes  from Gordon Dadds LLP in October 2016. Wong is praised as being ‘a real star’ who ‘looks for solutions to achieve the apparently impossible’, while Hughes is described as ‘first class.’ Robert Sutherland  is the other key name to note. The team recently advised on securing the grant of a new 24 hour licence for the new Koko and Hope Project in the heart of the Camden stress area; secured the grant of a 5am licence for a new venue Bloc South against Lambeth Councils licensing policy; and assisted the Royal National Theatre with restructuring of the premises licence following addition of new land to the site and change of hours and refreshing conditions with local residential opposition. The firm also counts high-end London hotels and restaurants as clients.
