Leisure & retail

The Leisure Sector has been hit hard recently with new legislation which has affected everyone's businesses.

There has been the change in both the Liquor Licensing and Betting & Gaming Law which has affected the way businesses trade. On top of that the Smoking Ban, changes in VAT, extra duty, Health & Safety and Employment law changes have had a negative impact on the Sector.

At Trethowans we know and understand your business having lawyers who previously worked within the leisure industry. Add to that the legal know-how of our Solicitors who have acted for major national leisure operators and individual businesses and you can be assured that we will give the right advice for your business.

The complement of legal services available in the Leisure Sector means that clients can have confidence that issues are not considered in isolation and solutions are offered so that the whole picture is covered to ensure your business can trade more effectively.

Caroline Matthews, Partner and Head of Leisure & Retail comments, "The experienced leisure & retail sector lawyers work hard to ensure a positive experience for you by delivering prompt, relevant advice in a friendly and approachable way. We understand the issues you are facing and will work with you as part of your team to ensure you get the most from your business."
