We are the leading liquor licensing, hospitality and gaming lawyers in South Australia.

When you’re running a liquor, hospitality or gaming business, you need to be able to depend on your lawyers to keep everything running smoothly.

What is liquor licensing?

Liquor licensing regulates and controls the sale, supply and consumption of alcohol in South Australia.

Liquor licensing laws require training for Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA). RSA training is necessary for anyone wishing to work in a job in which they will be serving alcohol.

There are different liquor licences for different events: some short-term, some long-term. We offer a full range of liquor licensing services, including buying or selling a liquor business.
