Our specialist breweries and beverages team acts for breweries, drinks businesses and pub groups, along with their suppliers, distributors and others involved in the supply chain.

As the sector continues to be affected by the cost-of-living crisis as well as inflated energy prices and raw material costs — not to mention the shifting attitudes towards alcohol consumption and severe impact of Brexit on exports — it’s becoming ever more difficult for creative and passionate brands to deliver top quality products and experiences to customers.

Paired with the constantly changing legal landscape for manufacturers — from the deposit return scheme and draught relief to alcohol duty rate changes, packaging extended producer responsibility and the allocation of tips act — it’s critical to have an experienced legal partner by your side to navigate your way towards commercial success.

Our multidisciplinary team contains experts in employment, corporate, intellectual property, contracts, banking, litigation, insolvency and real estate law — acting as a one-stop-shop for all your legal needs. We also have knowledge in more nuanced areas — such as environmental law, health and safety, regulatory compliance and licensing — and can advise on complex matters like food packing regulations, greenwashing risks and net zero regulations.

Strong relationships with financiers, accountants, investment funders, property valuers and other intermediaries also help us to facilitate the right introductions to further our clients’ goals.
