TLT has joined forces with the Scottish Wholesale Association to launch a bespoke licensing hotline service for its members.
The service gives independent wholesalers that are members of the Association access to some of the leading licensing lawyers in Scotland, including Stephen McGowan, who leads the TLT team, partner Caroline Loudon, legal director Niall Hassard and solicitor Michael McDougall.
Members can receive an initial free consultation, with a discounted rate for additional follow up legal services. Other benefits include access to a licence health check and TLT licensing seminars.
Stephen McGowan, partner and head of licensing (Scotland) at TLT, said: “Working closely with the Scottish Wholesale Association over the last year has highlighted the many licensing issues facing the industry. Setting up this hotline service will give the Scottish Wholesale Association's members access to our team here at TLT, helping them to quickly and effectively address their licensing issues. "
Kate Salmon, CEO of the Scottish Wholesale Association, said: “Partnering with the TLT licensing team in this way brings additional benefits to our members. TLT is recognised as one of the leading licensing practices in Scotland and across the UK, and Stephen and his team will bring much-needed licensing expertise to the table for our members. It is important that members understand how licensing impacts their own licensed retail and catering customers."
The hotline, which is available to members of the Scottish Wholesale Association only, can be accessed on 0333 006 1130.
