Knowledgeable Legal Guidance For Alcohol Business Transactions

When deciding whether to enter into a purchase or sale agreement for a business in the alcoholic beverage industry, there are numerous factors you must consider first. As a buyer, are you qualified to purchase the business? Will selling your business to a particular buyer or in a particular manner cause legal disruptions that could cost you time and money in the future?

The best way to shield yourself from liability during the transaction of a business is to consult an attorney, especially one that focuses on your particular industry. Samuel A. Rubert, P.A., represents buyers and sellers in Florida’s alcohol beverage industry. Our lawyers will advise you about what you need to know to protect yourself and your interests during the transaction and in the future.

What To Know Before Signing A Purchase Or Sale Agreement

One of the most important factors in the purchase or sale of a liquor-related business is ensuring that the proper entities are involved in the transaction. Florida law tightly regulates every aspect of the alcohol business. For example, an entity that is licensed to retail alcohol cannot also have permission to operate a wholesale business.

We help our clients make sure the parties to the transaction are appropriate so that business can continue within the law. Whichever side of the transaction you are on, our attorney will help you proceed knowledgeably and confidently. We can also assist you with the purchase or sale of a liquor license, if necessary.

The liquor industry is unique from other businesses. We have insight and practical legal knowledge for bars, restaurants, liquor stores, breweries and distilleries that other business law attorneys cannot provide. Our firm has guided hundreds of clients through business purchases and sales throughout Florida.
