Lawyers For Liquor Manufacturing Licenses

Looking to manufacture and sell your own liquor? Well, just like with all other businesses, you’ll need to obtain the appropriate licenses for manufacturing and distributing your alcoholic drinks. In all 50 states, as well as at the federal level, there are stringent laws governing the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages. The alcohol beverage control (ABC) laws are generally complex and state ABC agencies often have substantial regulatory power to enforce these laws.
Why you need a Lawyer for liquor Manufacturing Licenses
Even though the application process for liquor manufacturing licenses has been simplified, applicants are still required to adhere to a lengthy application process and many notice requirements. Working with a lawyer who is familiar with all the intricacies that are involved in the entire process is undoubtedly very helpful. The following are the reasons why you need a lawyer when obtaining a liquor manufacturing license:
1. Help you understand and abide by the ABC laws
The ABC laws and regulations may vary from one state to another, making it imperative for liquor manufacturers, including brewers, distillers and winemakers, to be conversant with the laws that are pertinent to them. A lawyer who is familiar with these laws and regulations will not only explain the laws to you, but he will ensure that you meet all the state and federal laws and regulations governing the manufacture of liquor.
2. Help you obtain the relevant license
It would be a waste of time, money and effort applying for a license, but later on realize that it limits you from doing certain things that are crucial for your business’ survival. Having a lawyer prevents you from making the wrong choice of liquor license for your business. For instance; if you intend to sell your manufactured products to wholesalers, you’ll need to obtain a wholesale license. With this license, you will have the liberty to manufacture, warehouse and distribute your liquor products. If you do not have an idea of which license is ideal for your type of business, a lawyer will be extremely helpful.
3. Help you obtain your license quickly
The process of obtaining a liquor manufacturing license is usually complex. Besides setting many regulations, ABC agencies require manufactures to provide extensive documentation, with some agencies requiring that principles undergo criminal background checks. It might take you a long time to get everything in order and have your application for a license approved. Having a lawyer who understands what ABC agencies really want will help you obtain your license as quickly as possible.
4. Helps you with legal counsel even after obtaining your license
After obtaining your license, you will still need to abide by the complicated system of laws that govern the manufacture, distribution, sale, as well as consumption of liquor. Having a lawyer with considerable experience in this field will help you to easily navigate those laws. This will ensure that your business operates smoothly without interruptions.
5. Offers legal representation incase of violations
As much as your lawyer may guide you through all the laws and regulations that you must abide by, there is still a chance that violations will happen knowingly or unknowingly. In case a violation occurs, your state ABC agency may initiate charges against your business. Having a lawyer who has extensive experience in successfully defending clients in such situations can greatly help.
The state and federal laws and regulations governing the manufacture and selling of liquor can be confusing and nerve-racking. Seeking help from lawyers for liquor manufacturing licenses helps to simplify and speedup the entire process. Once all the hurdles are got out of your way, you will be in a position to focus on manufacturing a great drink that distinctly stands out from the rest. By letting a lawyer take on the responsibility of obtaining a liquor manufacturing license for you, you will be able to focus on building your business and making profit.
