Hill Brown provide an exemplary service. Their wealth of knowledge and experience around licensing is untouchable by others and their advice is always prompt, comprehensive and can be trusted as the best course of action.
Audrey Junner is very knowledgeable not only on the law and practice generally but also on the regional practices and requirements of local licensing boards.
Audrey came highly recommended from a friend with a similar business and he was entirely correct, she knows the industry inside out. From her initial phone call to communication throughout the process, I was kept fully updated on all aspects of liquor licence application start to finish. I'd recommend Audrey to anyone looking for her professional advice.
We approached Miller Samuel Hill Brown through recommendation and after initially struggling to advance licencing applications with our local authority ourselves. From the outset, they gave us the confidence that we were in safe hands and kept us informed at all stages of our applications. We were particularly impressed with the time taken to understand our business and the people within it, making their representations to the licencing board genuine and effective.
I couldn’t recommend any other solicitors like this. Miller Samuel Hill Brown are an amazing company to deal with from start to finish. First class service and straight on the case. Everyone I have dealt with within the business has been friendly, efficient and professional. Advice is always presented in a user-friendly format and they take their time to ensure that you have digested everything. 5 stars from me!
