Laceys is the only firm in Bournemouth and Poole to have a specialist licensing department and one of a small handful of firms based in the south-west of England that is recognised in the Legal 500.
We specialise in the licensing of large scale outdoor events such as music and other festivals, game fairs and events held at stately homes and other large estates, representing clients that are widespread throughout England and Wales.
We deal with the licensing of;
- Live and Recorded Music
- Late Night Refreshment (i.e. hot food and drink takeaways)
- Betting offices, casinos and both adult and family entertainment centres
- Gaming Machines
- Sporting and other events
- Pavement Café or Table and Chair Licences
- Taxi and Private Hire Licensing.
Our clients range from national organisations and brewers to independent operators, from a vast spectrum of businesses including pubs, off-licences, restaurants, hotels, nightclubs, late-night take-aways, betting offices, sports grounds, minicab firms and sporting arenas to name but a few.
Whether you are looking to buy, sell, change or apply for a new licence, Laceys can provide a “one-stop” service. We manage not only the licensing aspects but also the planning and legal work involved as well. We also help with risk assessments and all the other “red tape” involved.
Things sometimes go wrong. We advise clients on “risk aversion” to try and make sure that nothing untoward happens but ultimately, if a client is threatened with the loss of a licence, we can and do provide emergency and out of hours cover whenever necessary.
