Vineyard, Brewery and Distillery Law

wine corkStarting up and prospering in the booming fields of wine, beer and spirits requires strategic business planning, thinking and implementation. It requires a clear understanding of risk and financial planning.

Perhaps most important, a business in this wonderful but specialized field demands strong branding, industry-specific knowledge of contracts, regulations and restraints and an ability to recognize and seize opportunities.

We do more than fill out the paperwork, though of course that’s important. We are strategists and counselors. We have in-depth experience across all three areas of alcohol-related IP, trademark and brand protection and – only when necessary – litigation.
