Business Attorneys

Our attorneys strive to provide legal solutions that consider our clients’ whole business because it is not enough simply to solve a legal matter if the solution compromises other areas of the enterprise. With that in mind, we provide business-focused legal advice to clients in the hospitality industry. We represent alcoholic beverage license applicants, licensees, and their licensed establishments before the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board to secure their liquor/alcoholic beverage license privileges and needs.

Our clients include:

  • Restaurants and pop-ups
  • Hotels
  • Theaters
