Brewery Law

Brewery law has a number of special features: As a food item, beer is subject to special controls (food law). In addition, breweries traditionally have an industry-specific distribution system (beer supply contracts, restaurant law). Our experienced lawyers are deeply familiar with the industry.

In addition to traditional brewery law, our lawyers also advise and represent breweries on the purchase or sale of breweries or brewery real estate (pubs, beer gardens), on financing in the brewery sector (venture capital, private equity) or on issues relating to stock corporation law (stock breweries).
