Product Description

Hear directly from local and state regulators and experienced counsel  

The laws regarding the sale and distribution of alcohol in Massachusetts are ever changing. Guiding a client through the process can be a minefield for the uninformed practitioner. Whether you wish to represent restaurants, hotels, package stores, convenience stores, farmer-wineries, farmer-breweries, or farmer distilleries, this is a unique and complex area that poses significant challenges for any practitioner. 

Take this opportunity to hear from experienced regulators and attorneys on how to best navigate this constantly evolving area of rules, regulations, decisions, and statutes. Get an overview of the alcoholic beverages licensing framework to help you understand the interaction between the local boards and the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission (“ABCC”). The faculty focus on changes to the statutes and regulations—an understanding of which is essential to effectively practicing in this area—and they highlight the derivative practical implications and issues affecting your practice. Hear directly from local and state regulators and experienced counsel to gain insight into the practice before local boards and the ABCC. Bring your questions to customize the agenda.
