Complaining about licensed premises
Ian was previously head of a local authority legal department, with “hands on” experience
of running a licensing team, and his current self-employed practice reflects this
local government experience. Ian advised local authorities extensively on the implementation
of the Licensing Act 2003 and now regularly appears both for and against licensing
authorities at appeals and review hearings, on alcohol/entertainment matters and
in hackney carriage/private hire cases.
Ian undertakes a wide range of direct access work (usually for a fixed fee), as well
as accepting instructions from solicitors. Ian is available to provide advice, draft
documents and attend hearings at all levels of courts, tribunals and appeal panels,
throughout England & Wales.
