WHY DO I NEED A CALIFORNIA ALCOHOL COMPLIANCE ATTORNEY?
Every business in every industry must meet certain requirements set forth by government oversight agencies, both at the state and federal levels. If you want to continue running a legitimate business in California, you must meet all the regulatory requirements your business model entails. Due to the sensitive and potentially dangerous nature of alcohol, California, and every other state in the US, heavily regulates the manufacturing, labeling, trademarking, distribution, sale, and consumption of alcohol. Navigating the legal implications of alcohol sales in California can be incredibly challenging, especially for those with no formal legal training or experience.
Hiring a California alcohol compliance attorney means having a legal advocate for your business who can help you navigate these complex issues swiftly, allowing you to focus on running your business with peace of mind. Without the help of an attorney, a seemingly simple legal issue with your business could escalate into an expensive liability. Whenever the business you have built is at stake in a legal matter, legal representation from a California alcohol compliance attorney, you can trust is crucial.
WHAT CAN A CALIFORNIA ALCOHOL COMPLIANCE ATTORNEY DO FOR ME?
It can be very difficult to manage a legal matter with your business while also trying to run that business. It’s also common to feel overwhelmed by the amount of regulatory red tape you must address just to get any type of alcohol retail business up and running. As your California alcohol compliance lawyers, the team at Blake & Ayaz can help your business in the alcohol consumer sales industry stay compliant and profitable with various legal services, including:
- ABC Permits. Your alcohol retail business must have appropriate licensing from the California ABC. We can help you make more sense of the permit application process, determining which permits your business needs and the most streamlined method for obtaining them.
- Formulas. If you manufacture alcohol in the state of California, our team can help you legally protect the beverage formulas you have worked so hard to develop and refine. This protection of your intellectual property is a long-term investment in the competitiveness and profitability of your business. We can also help to ensure your formulas meet beverage regulations set forth by the Food and Drug Administration as well as alcohol content laws at the federal and state levels.
- Labeling. The FDA and other regulating authorities have strict labeling requirements for alcoholic beverages. Your business must ensure complete and accurate labeling for all alcoholic beverage products so your products can legally remain on store shelves.
- Trademarks. Building a business with a product line of alcoholic beverages requires creating a brand for the business. If you do not want another party profiting off the work you have put into your company, establish your trademark with the US Patent and Trademark Office. This process is notoriously complex, and we can provide legal guidance as you navigate trademark applications for your products.
- Advertising. Various laws regulate how businesses may promote alcoholic product brands. We can review your marketing materials and strategy to ensure it complies with federal, state, and local laws so you can legally establish a legitimate brand for your business.
- State ABC disputes. If your business has been cited as being in violation of California ABC laws, our firm can provide representation as you navigate the proceedings to follow. We will do our best to minimize the penalties of any alleged violations and streamline your return to normal business operations.
