Alcohol Licensing with Alastair Sherriff - June 2023

The content of the webinar and any associated handouts are intended to provide a summary and general overview on matters of interest and are not intended to be comprehensive. The information presented is not legal advice, is not to be acted on as such and is subject to change without notice.  It is to be used as a guide and does not replace the need for sound professional advice.   Participants should not act upon any such information without first seeking qualified professional guidance on your specific matter.
