About Us

Flaherty & O’Hara, P.C. is one of the largest liquor licensing practices in the country, maintaining an unmatched understanding of beverage alcohol laws. We represent hundreds of establishments and institutions on liquor licensing and beverage alcohol matters, and we have assisted in some of the largest mergers, public offerings and other multi-unit transactions in the history of the restaurant and hotel industries.

The beverage alcohol industry is complex and highly regulated. At Flaherty & O’Hara, P.C., in order to stay ahead of the curve, we have developed close working relationships with members and officials in local, state and national regulatory agencies, professional and trade associations, lobbying and special interest groups. We have drafted legislation and have been leaders in setting the standard for practice in the industry we serve.

With well over 100 years of combined experience, our support staff can augment in-house resources for maximum efficiency. Our staff can coordinate and process renewals, transfers and regulatory reporting requirements for individual as well as multi-unit operators. Prompt, professional, courteous and cost-effective service is the hallmark of our support staff.
