Liquor licensing

Williams Winter has been heavily involved in the area of Liquor Licensing and the Hotel and Hospitality industries for many years.  We work extensively with Liquor Licensing Victoria (LLV) and can assist you in all of your licensing requirements.

Any person or organisation that intends to supply liquor in Victoria must apply for a licence. The type of license required will depend on the type of applicant and how they wish to supply the liquor.  Our commercial lawyers have extensive experience working  with LLV on all types of Liquor License applications.  We work with businesses and organisations of all sizes to ensure that the application process is seam free for our clients.  We also act for objectors against the grant of a new or varied license.

Our work includes Applications under the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998, including

  • New licence applications, transfers and/or variations of existing licences
  • Appearing on behalf of licensees in respect of Applications by the Police for the cancellation or suspension of an existing licence or Applications to suspend persons from being involved in a licensee company
  • Appearances before Panel Hearings of LLV
  • Acting for objectors against the grant of a new licence or in respect of variations to existing licences
