SRC Liquor Licensing/Hospitality Law Practice Providing Guidance to Hospitality Businesses as New York Begins Reopening Process

Every business is suffering in some way during the COVID-19 crisis, but the Hospitality Industry may be taking the hardest hit.

As we continue to serve our clients, Shenker Russo & Clark’s Alcohol Beverage Control Practice is publishing alerts on how businesses can respond more effectively to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the changing regulations and programs that have been instituted.

We are continuing to work with restaurants, bars, hotels, caterers, grocery and convenience stores, manufacturers, cruise lines, liquor stores, airlines, wholesalers and a range of other businesses in regard to the changing guidelines and legal issues as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 crisis has resulted in numerous business issues for the industry. Not only have people been “panic shopping”, but there is a significant portion of the population that is shifting their buying habits to delivery apps for everything from groceries to paper products to ready-made lunches and dinners.

With this new shift in business and the rapidly changing rules and laws being made every day in New York as Regions begin the Reopening Process,  Shenker Russo & Clark’s (SRC) Attorneys and Paralegals in our Alcohol Beverage Control and Hospitality Law Practice are able to help businesses navigate New York State’s complex laws, rules and regulations in regard to reopening plans, delivery of goods, securing liquor licenses, identifying potential issues and addressing them to limit the potential for costly delays or fines.

SRC attorneys and professionals are dedicated to your success by delivering responsive service and measurable results. What makes our Firm unique is that we are also Government Affairs attorneys who have experience working with Government. We are problem solvers who work together with our clients to find the best possible method to resolve their matter – whether it be through negotiation, litigation or when all else fails, changing the rules through legislative or regulatory action.

SRC’s attorneys help ensure that our clients comply with all of NYSLA’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Laws and regulations while offering reliable assistance when they respond to licensing queries. If a client is ever charged with violations, we are familiar with the substance and subtleties of representing them before the NYSLA.

If you need assistance or have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us directly.

Thank you for your service during this difficult time.
