Liquor License Advisor has earned a reputation for integrity and results throughout the industry because of the high level of professional, personalized service and attention to detail which we deliver to every client. We thrive on complex liquor license challenges where our creativity and strategic problem-solving skills can be used to facilitate a solution and ultimately a successful transaction. Our clients depend on us to be the driving force on projects from the outset until the project is completed.

Our long-standing relationships with a nationwide network of corporate licensing managers, liquor license attorneys, landlords, lenders, restaurant and liquor store owners, developed over more than two decades, allow us to be effective wherever you need us—Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida or anywhere in the US.

We’ve refined our process to make liquor licensing even easier for you so that you can take care of what’s most important to you. We routinely share our extensive knowledge base with attorneys who may not be familiar with the specifics of liquor licensing, work with franchise developers to secure licenses that match their timelines and lease obligations and offer consultations to corporate restaurant partners on market considerations before they ever break ground. Whether you are buying, selling or just need to learn more about licensing, Liquor License Advisors will help you get the results you are looking for.

We take pride in our ability to employ creative solutions when necessary, keep deals together and maintain a level of calm throughout even the most challenging transaction.
