We advise clients on a wide range of legal issues, ranging from day to day commercial and contractual legal advice, through to the sale and acquisition of licensed premises, and the obtaining of consents for liquor and gaming applications relating to the establishment of new hotel and club venues.
We also provide hospitality clients with a range of planning services around the establishment or extension of licensed premises. This includes providing advice on applying for permits, negotiating amendments and approvals with Councils, and appealing objections.
BSP Lawyers’ hospitality practice provides client with extensive expertise in gaming law. We act for individual hotel and club operators, as well as larger hotel groups across Melbourne and Victoria, with a history of being involved in many of Victoria’s major transactions and landmark court cases in these areas.
We understand the complex regulatory framework governing many licensed premises (particularly those involving gaming machines) and use this knowledge and our experience in this area to ensure applications and transactions are settled quickly and efficiently, without costly delays for our clients.
