Practice Area Overview
These laws address the rights, privileges, obligations and duties of a wide variety of individuals, businesses, and entities. The common thread which brings this disparate group together is the fact that they are all associated with or involved in eating, drinking, travelling, entertainment, and accommodation activities.
Some of the applicable laws are, however, specific to hospitality and tourism. For example, the law regulating selling and supplying of liquor. Such law in effect is codified in legislation which clearly sets out the different types of licences required to sell liquor, the tests for obtaining a licence, the rights and duties of licensees, and the offences and penalties imposed for breaches. The liquor industry is heavily regulated and controlled with its own specific legislation. Liquor licensing law is very technical and a specialist area of practice.
