Helping You Secure And Maintain Your Liquor License

When liquor sales account for a sizeable amount of your business's revenue, your business's viability may rely on your ability to complete the licensing process correctly and on time. Since the state of Pennsylvania requires annual liquor license renewals, this requirement is not a one-time obligation. If you do not have a legal background, this yearly task can divert your focus from running your business.

Partnering with an attorney who understands procedures and regulations can help you avoid unnecessary delays and allow you to concentrate on developing your business. For decades, restaurant and liquor store owners and others operating in the hospitality industry have depended on Gusty A.E. Sunseri & Associates, P.C., to remain in compliance with state and local liquor laws, and defend against violations.

Streamlining The Licensing Process

Our lead attorney, Mr. Gusty Sunseri, has worked on various Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) issues. With his assistance, you can rest assured that your forms contain the necessary information and documentation.

We are equipped to represent you in matters that include:

  • License renewals
  • Sale and purchase of liquor licenses
  • Liquor license closings
  • Revenue clearance, labor and industry clearance
  • Liquor license safekeeping

Should parties seek to prevent you from receiving or transferring a liquor license by filing a protest or petition to intervene, we are qualified to represent you in hearings or appeals.

Minimizing The Impact A Violation Has On Your Business

In addition to guiding your through the licensing process, we can defend your business against allegations of license violations due to serving a minor or other acts. We are qualified to represent your interests before an administrative law judge after you receive a citation from the Pennsylvania State Police, Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement (PSP BLCE).

Using decades of court hearing and litigation experience, we meticulously prepare for your administrative law judge hearing and establish strong arguments to challenge the citation. We strive to obtain a favorable outcome to limit the likelihood of heavy fines or a liquor license suspension.
