Liquor License Transfers: Practices

Liquor License Transfers

Person to Person - Place to Place
Management Deals - Stock Sales

Business Transactions, Contracts and Licensing

Liquor license transfers require specialized knowledge of alcoholic beverage control law. Do not rely on your “real estate attorney” to navigate these highly regulated, and often complicated, high-stakes transactions. You need an attorney who has been in the business and understands how important the details and the timing of these transfers can be.


Thomas Jannarone, Esquire, regularly handles many types of business transactions, license transfers, contracts, licensing, and other deals common to the hospitality business including:

  • Liquor License Transfers

    • Person to Person and Place to Place

  • Business Purchases

    • LLC Membership/Stock Sales

  • Asset Sales

  • Expansion/Reduction of Premises

  • Management Agreements

  • Concession Agreements

  • Promoter Deals

  • License Renewals

    • 12:39 Applications​

    • 12:18 Applications

  • Special Permits

Any deal which includes a liquor license should be handled by an experienced A.B.C. transaction attorney.  One mistake can put your liquor license, and livelihood, in jeopardy.

Make sure you always consult an experienced liquor license attorney; someone who knows the strict rules and regulations of New Jersey’s Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
