We are lawyers with real world experience for  breweries, wineries, and distilleries.

To get the detailed scoop you have to dig into our biographies. In short, our very experienced lawyers file and deal with more trademark, brand and label disputes in a month than most lawyers see in five years.  With lawyers who have run wineries, own breweries, and have MBAs to back their legal education, real world practical advice saves our winemakers, brewers and distillers real money.
