We are pleased to announce the launch of our new series of educational seminars and workshops directed at the Restaurant and Nightlife industry throughout NYC. Please share with anyone interested! As our clients are well aware, Rodriguez Law is unique in that over the years, we have developed one of the leading legal practices focusing on the Restaurant and Nightlife industry in New York.
The first seminar, entitled The Essentials of Liquor Licensing Law, will discuss and explore all of the important considerations involved in preparing and applying for a liquor license in New York. The seminar will address each of the following concerns and issues:
What are the different classes or types of liquor licenses available in New York and how are they different?
Who can obtain a liquor license? What are the statutory disqualifications that would prohibit someone from getting a liquor license?
What is the role of the community board in the process? Can the community board’s vote prevent me from obtaining my liquor license?
What is the 200 Foot Rule? When can the presence of a church or school result in a denial of my application? Are there exceptions to the rule?
What is the 500 Foot Rule? What happens if my establishment is within 500 feet of three or more liquor licensed establishments?
What is the financial disclosure section all about?
What is the timeline involved in the process?
What are the most common reasons why liquor license applications get delayed or denied?
What is a temporary permit and when can I qualify for one?
What other considerations should I think about when buying a business with a liquor license?
