Although Stariha & Brower, PLC has recently begun working with manufacturers, our firm cut its teeth on – and has extensive experience with – liquor licensed retailers. Our on-premise (Class C Liquor License) licensee clients span the state of Michigan and encompass a vast variety of establishment types (bars, restaurants, pool halls, concert venues, private clubs, etc).
Our firm has obtained approval for liquor license transfers and applications in almost every county in the state; perhaps more importantly, our record for liquor license applications and transfers is perfect. Since our firm’s formation in 2011, MLCC has approved every license application and transfer request we initiated before them. Whether you are a bar owner seeking representation during the sale of your license and real estate, a purchaser seeking to obtain a license and real estate, or an applicant seeking a new quota license, our firm is well-versed in your needs and the most efficient methods of achieving your goals. Whether our clients need to purchase and transfer a Class C liquor license, apply for a quota license, or obtain an on-premise Resort / Redevelopment liquor license, our firm has experience in on-premise licensing that simply cannot be found in a general practice firm.
In addition to liquor licensing needs (applications, transfers, and violations), we pride ourselves in acting as a full-service firm for liquor licensees. Our services include assisting with business organizations, contract preparation and review, real estate concerns, and the other issues that face our clients.
