The Law firm of Mehler & Buscemi has a vast degree of experience in handling legal matters concerning businesses licensed to sell alcoholic beverages. Going to Court to contest a decision rendered by the New York State Liquor Authority (SLA), requires a unique set of skills and expertise to obtain the results needed by a licensee adversely affected by a determination of the agency.

Whether it is a licensing matter that requires representation in a New York State Supreme Court or an adverse determination after a hearing, that would require an argument in one of the Appellate Divisions of the Supreme Court or even the Court of Appeals, Mehler & Buscemi has literally argued hundreds of such proceedings.

In addition to being experts in what is referred to as administrative law as it is known in the courts, the firm also represents licensees and their employees in criminal court alcoholic beverages violations.

The firm also represents applicants and licensees at the SLA at the hearings conducted by the agency, investigative interviews, and matters that go before the Commissioners of the SLA known as Full Board matters. Their unparalleled understanding of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law and Rules of the State Liquor Authority will be invaluable to those that need assistance in such matters.

The firm is also well experienced in handling matters relating to a "nuisance abatement proceeding" brought on by the NYC Corporation Counsel's Office Civil Enforcement Unit, wherein the City of New York obtains a closure of a licensed premises and a licensee must reopen immediately.
