Licensing and gaming law

The licensing and gaming industry has been subject to a number of major statutory changes in the last decade with the introduction of the Licensing Act 2003 and Gambling Act 2005.

Our experience in licensing and gaming enables us to deal with a variety of situations including the complexities involved in obtaining a licence as well as defending clients against prosecutions or potential prosecutions.

For any business involved in the licensing and gaming industry there is an increasing burden to comply with legislation and failure to do so can lead to prosecutions and heavy fines. We help businesses prepare for these cases and put policies and procedures in place to avoid any future prosecutions.

John Walker, senior partner, is an expert in all fields of licensing and gaming law. His client portfolio, over his forty-year legal career, spans betting offices, shopkeepers, bars and restaurants and other local retail outlets. It also includes several major nightclub chains in the Midlands and Staffordshire.
