Beverages That A Liquor License Is Required ForMichigan Liquor License Attorneys

Owning a party or convenience store is the dream of many people in Michigan, but getting the necessary licenses and approvals can be a nightmare. Zoning issues, traffic flow questions and difficulties in getting a liquor license can block the construction or purchase of these retail establishments.

Carlin Edwards Brown PLLC is a law firm that clears the way for owners of party and convenience stores. We help them obtain SDD licenses and deal with local authorities.

Contact us to speak with an experienced attorney. We will act quickly to seek the licenses and approvals you need.

Obtaining a SDD License

A SDD license allows the owner of a store to sell beer, wine and liquor for consumption off premises. Many business people think that an SDD license comes automatically when they purchase a store with an existing license. This is not true. Local municipalities and townships have the opportunity to object to SDD license transfers, and these potential objections must be addressed by capable attorneys who know the Liquor Code. Often these denials are based on concerns regarding traffic and concentration of similar stores in a neighborhood, as well as concerns over the background of the store owner requesting the license.

Our firm has a great deal of experience with local authorities regarding the approval and transfer of SDD licenses, including the clerks, planners, police departments, board members and commissioners who make the liquor license decisions in our state’s municipalities. We work hard to help our clients get the liquor licenses, permits and approvals they need to operate off-premises beverage stores — quickly and efficiently.

Help With City Permits and Approvals

In addition to helping people obtain and transfer liquor licenses, our lawyers help store owners deal with various zoning laws and other regulations that make owning a party or convenience store in Michigan difficult.

As your one-stop source for permit and approval assistance, we can help clear the way for you to buy and operate a successful store.

For help regarding a liquor license transfer and approval to operate a party or convenience store, contact our firm online or call at 248-816-5000 today.
