At Ahern Roberts O’Rourke Williams & Partners we have extensive experience and knowledge in relation to all aspect of the licensing code with a clear understanding of how the licensing system operates in practice.

We have a large client base, including off-licensees, publicans and hoteliers. We provide them with a complete service including obtaining new licences, transfer of licences, renewals together with the sale and purchase of licensed premises.

We deal regularly with licensing for hotels, restaurants, clubs and dealers. This, in turn, requires us to liaise with Local Authorities, Fire Safety Engineers, the Gardai and Courts.

We provide representation to clients if prosecuted including “after hours” and “under age” prosecutions.

Our practice areas include:

  • Ordinary Publicans Seven Day licences
  • Dance licences
  • Music and Singing licences
  • Occasional licences
  • Club Certificates
  • Special Exemption Orders
  • Hotels
