Alcoholic Beverage Law

The laws governing alcohol licensing are remarkably complex. As such, it’s comforting to work with an experienced, capable law firm. At VZP, we regularly represent establishments before local alcoholic beverage boards and the Indiana Alcohol & Tobacco Commission. This work may include the preparation of all necessary applications, and the preparation of incorporation documents or operating agreements for partnerships or limited liability companies.

We also negotiate with state and local agencies regarding jurisdiction over areas of alcoholic beverage operations. We can represent your interests with alcoholic beverage boards and commissions, the Indiana Department of Revenue, the department of health, local zoning and compliance authorities, and the county treasurer. Additionally, we’re often called upon to assist clients in the sale or purchase of an alcoholic beverage establishment.

We also defend clients accused of alcohol violations before the local alcoholic beverage boards and the Alcohol & Tobacco Commission, including the annual renewal process.
