Our understanding of restaurant/bar licensing and regulations enables us to provide you with solid legal guidance and representation.

The restaurant and bar business finds itself subject to considerable government regulations and licensing requirements. With the public and legal concerns associated with everything from food quality to alcohol service to the broadcasting of pay-per-view events and music, combined with various levels of government having taken it upon themselves to stipulate an extensive array of conditions when the public patronizes an establishment, the ownership and management of restaurants and bars have considerable legal obligations to comply with.

Unfortunately, the legal difficulties for most restaurants, bars and nightclubs arise from their failure to institute proactive measures to insure compliance with the current regulations and licensing requirements. For unlike the far lower cost associated with keeping one's business in compliance, the costs involved in dealing with a regulatory or licensing violation can be quite substantial. And those costs might not be limited to significant monetary fines and penalties, but can also result in major damage to the establishment's reputation and even the closure of the business, whether it be temporary or permanent. As such, it makes a lot of sense to protect against such violations, but when they do occur, it is imperative that you retain knowledgeable legal counsel to represent your business in this important legal fight.

For knowledgeable and experienced legal representation in dealing with the regulatory and licensing requirements of owning and operating a restaurant, bar or nightclub in Alberta, contact lawyer Christopher Neufeld at 403-400-4092 or
