Defending Formal Administrative & Disciplinary Proceedings

Lawyers for Wichita Liquor Licenses

JHC’s Wichita licensing lawyers also represent individuals and businesses who need assistance with liquor laws and licensing issues. Any Kansas business that depends on alcoholic beverage sales needs a license issued by the Department of Revenue’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Division (ABC).

Our Wichita liquor license lawyers help clients understand and satisfy the dual-level regulation scheme. And we assist clients applying for their first liquor licenses as well as clients who want to transfer, modify, or renew an existing liquor license.
