Licensing

Licensing law in Northern Ireland differs considerably to the law in the rest of the UK not only in terms of the relevant licensing legislation but also in terms of the significant body of (largely unreported) case law.  O’Hare Solicitors Belfast enjoy a considerable reputation in this area of law.  We have acted for and continue to act for some of the most significant “players“ in this field in Northern Ireland including the owners of pubs, restaurants, hotels and book-makers, clubs and pharmacists. 

As a result we have been involved in many cases the results of which have contributed considerably to the development of licensing law in Northern Ireland.  As a result we have considerable expertise in this area and can offer an unrivalled specialist service in all areas of licensing law with a particular expertise in liquor and book-making law.
