Personal licences

Personal licences are a pre-requisite for operators wanting to sell alcohol. The roles of the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) or the Designated Premises Manager in Scotland (DPM) and personal licence holders are not simply titles. They confer responsibilities that need to be properly understood to ensure businesses and premises are operated correctly. We help our clients with all their personal licence applications and DPS/DPM requirements.

We act for pubs, bars, restaurants, hotels, music festivals and shops, from individual operators and smaller independent businesses to national multiple companies.

We offer everything from general advice in relation to the roles of DPS/DPM and personal licence holders to specific advice in relation to individuals and their licences. We can also assist with the application process for individuals wishing to obtain personal licences or take on the role of DPS/DPM.

Whether applying for a personal licence, change of DPS/DPM or representing an applicant at hearing, we are able to offer strategic and pragmatic advice to ensure your business needs are served.
