Calling All Brewery Lawyers

Posted on | December 10, 2012 by | 12 Comments

Brewers deserve good counsel. Help me help them out.

To all of the wonderful readers on the Brewery Law – thanks. The overwhelming amount of response I have had from brewers around the country has been humbling. I promise to keep on with the blog. It’s been a blast.


In the meantime, I wanted to do something I normally do not: Talk to other lawyers. In my on-going quest to ensure that every brewer has adequate and cost-effective counsel, regardless of location, I am making a call out to lawyers in other jurisdictions. Please introduce yourselves! I am regularly contacted by brewers that I cannot assist due to jurisdictional restraints. And as we all know, there is a serious gaping hole where the Alcoholic Beverage Law community should be.


So please, reach out. Thanks.

    I’m located right in the heart of North Carolina (Piedmont Triad- Winston-Salem). Able to help craft brewers across the state (solo practitioner law firm) with reasonable flat rates, given up front.

    I will be happy to return the favor and help find out of state craft brewers assistance.

    I’m an attorney in PA, with offices from Massachusetts to DC. We work with a number of small and growing craft breweries and can help on a broad range of issues, in a cost-efficient manner. My work involves protecting and enforcing trademarks/brands and breweries/beer names. We can also help with forming an LLC/corporation, developing partnership/operating agreements, capital raising, real estate, and a number of other issues commonly faced by breweries in the Mid-Atlantic region. Happy to talk to you about how we can help!
