The Alcoholic Beverage Team at Bone McAllester Norton offers a multi-disciplinary approach to not just licensing issues but the overall business success.  This Team provides federal, state and local licensing and regulatory compliance advice to clients in all tiers of the three-tier system.

We advise restaurants, hotels, bars, clubs, resorts and venues with liquor, beer, dance, catering and special event licensing statewide in Tennessee. We also represent manufacturers, importers, wholesalers and retailers of liquor, wine and beer with a special focus on manufacturing, importing and retail. We work with federal and state rules and regulations regarding advertising, marketing and commerce.

We regularly work with the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission and have worked directly with many of Tennessee’s 300+ local beer boards. We defend citations and assist with enforcement matters, administrative hearings and in-state court actions challenging existing ordinances and statutes and regulations. Working with registered lobbyists, we draft state and local liquor legislation.

Our attorneys in real estate, construction, labor and employment, as well as in general corporate and tax matters, routinely provide practical, cost-efficient advice to our licensing clients. Taxation is a critical issue for licensees and permittees, and clients routinely request our assistance with compliance. The attorneys in the Alcoholic Beverage group have areas of focus that are complementary to their liquor law practice. We strive to be a one-stop shop.
