Michigan’s liquor laws are among the most complex in the nation, but we will not let that stand in the way of your business’ success.
Stariha & Brower, PLC is Michigan’s premier law firm for both on and off-premise Michigan liquor license purchases, transfers, and applications. Our firm has obtained approval for liquor licenses in almost every county in the state; perhaps more importantly, our firm’s record for liquor license applications and transfers is perfect. Since our firm’s formation in 2011, the Michigan Liquor Control Commission has approved every license application and transfer request we brought before them. Furthermore, as a result of our daily work in this field, we have established relationships with the Michigan Liquor Control Commission, state government leaders, local government officials, local police departments, and the other individuals who play a role in the liquor license application process. Through these relationships, we are able to stay abreast of changes in the law, expedite matters, and achieve the best possible result for our clients.
Using our extensive network of brokers, we are quickly able to locate Michigan Class C and SDD liquor licenses that are for sale, negotiate purchase agreements, and handle the transfer from day one through closing.
Purchasing a Michigan liquor license is not always necessary. Some licenses, such as SDM, micro brewery, small wine maker, and small distillery licenses are always available. Under Michigan’s quota system, both on and off-premise liquor licenses may be available for no cost other than the state application fee. Other licenses, such as Resort and Redevelopment licenses, may also be available when it otherwise seems impossible to find a license. Using our experience, knowledge, and skill, we can quickly identify those license types that are available and assist you through the process of obtaining the license that fits your needs.
Stariha & Brower, PLC is experienced at working with any type of Michigan liquor license, including Class C licenses, Specially Designated Distributor Licenses (SDD), Specially Designated Merchant Licenses (SDM), Micro Brewer Licenses, Small Wine Maker Licenses, and Small Distiller Licenses.
