For Immediate Release

Lancaster, Pa. – Barley Snyder, a law firm representing businesses and individuals in all major areas of civil law, has formed a Liquor Law Practice focusing on the complex area of liquor law and the unique legal needs of businesses that provide alcoholic beverages in the state.

Barley Snyder’s Liquor Law Practice has pooled several attorneys and professionals at the firm with extensive experience in all areas of liquor law including: the purchase and sale of licenses, intermunicipal transfers, licensing, extension of licensed premises, opening and operation of storage and satellite locations, enforcement, and manufacturing licenses such as limited winery, limited distillery and brewery licenses. The attorneys are also well-versed in representing licensees before the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) in defending Liquor Control Enforcement actions including subsequent appeals to the Court of Common Pleas and the Commonwealth Court.  

“We are excited to announce this expanded practice offering within our firm,” said Larry Heim, attorney and chair of the Liquor Law Practice, who was a driving force behind establishing this new group. “The legal landscape of liquor law is challenging and ever evolving. Navigating it successfully requires in-depth knowledge of the process and boots on the ground in order to develop creative solutions. We look forward to being a trusted resource for businesses seeking counsel on their liquor law matters.”

Heim has been helping businesses in the hospitality industry obtain and defend their liquor licenses for more than 40 years.

“The alcoholic beverage market is deeply embedded in Pennsylvania and by expanding our resources, we can further assist clients with the various intricacies of liquor law,” said Derek Dissinger, partner and chair of the firm’s Hospitality Industry Group. “Our goal is to help our clients navigate PLCB regulations so businesses can thrive and achieve their strategic goals.” 

Barley Snyder is a preferred vendor and member of the Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage and Tavern Association (PLBTA). The firm is also a member of the Pennsylvania Restaurant and Lodging Association (PRLA). 

Anyone with questions about how Barley Snyder can help their business obtain a liquor license, or if help is needed with an enforcement matter, should contact Larry Heim, Derek Dissinger or any member of the Liquor Law Practice. To learn more about Barley Snyder’s new Liquor Law Practice, visit:
