Owen Bird shareholder Dan Coles has authored a new chapter on Liquor Licence Due Diligence for the Continuing Legal Education Society of B.C.’s Due Diligence Deskbook. The 2022 print edition of the publication is scheduled for release today, Sept. 21st!
The new chapter covers the key legislation, policy, and due diligence procedure for transactions involving liquor licences in B.C., whether a lawyer’s client is looking to enter the hospitality sector, acquire an existing licence along with premises such as a restaurant or bar, or investigate the licensed establishments operating in a target commercial property.
Written primarily from the lawyer’s perspective, CLEBC’s Due Diligence Deskbook provides practical commentary, precedents, and contact information for conducting the many types of due diligence searches that exist, including those searches that lawyers most commonly conduct.
Dan Coles is actively involved in British Columbia’s dynamic hospitality and liquor manufacturing industries. He writes an award-winning blog Alcohol & Advocacy, and advises clients on British Columbia’s liquor laws and regulations.
For those interested in reading Dan’s contribution, it’s currently available as the book’s sample chapter.
