New York couldn't survive without its valued small businesses, and our law firm is here to provide the legal counsel you and your business need to thrive in this state. Specifically, some of the ways we are able to help small business owners, and prospective owners, like yourself include representation before the NYS Liquor Authority and buying/selling small businesses.
Liquor Licenses & Representation Before the NYS Liquor Authority
Many small business establishments, such as restaurants and alcohol specialty shops, sell liquor. But before you can do that, your establishment needs to be licensed which means dealing with the New York State (NYS) Liquor Authority. Some of the most basic requirements for holding a liquor license include:
- Being a U.S. Citizen / Possessing Permanent Resident Status
- 21 Years or Older
- Cannot be a Convicted Felon
- Cannot be a Police Officer with Arresting Powers
While it is not essential that you contact an attorney to help you apply for a liquor license, doing so can be extremely beneficial. This is why we open up this legal service to small business owners throughout New York. To learn more about the NYS Liquor Authority and obtaining a license, visit their website.
Buying and Selling Small Businesses
Musa-Obregon & Associates also offers business acquisition and sale services, particularly for small businesses. Here are some ways our firm can help you whether you intend to buy or sell:
If you are buying a small business…
Buying an already-existing small business can often be a smarter decision than starting your own from the ground up. If this is the path you've chosen for your business, we can:
- Research the business' track record, business practices, etc.
- Business tax services
- Transfer of ownership
If you are selling a small business…
If you have decided that it is time to sell your small business, then Musa-Obregon & Associates attorneys can help you in the following ways:
- Complete a covenant not to compete
- List all inventory included in the sale
- Determine all fees, and much more.
