Leading regional law firm Blackadders LLP has appointed liquor licensing specialist Janet Hood as a consultant solicitor to work within their business division.
Janet Hood, the only liquor licensing accredited specialist in Tayside and Angus, has extensive experience working with both licensees and local authorities and is an active member of a number of Scottish Executive committees concerning alcohol. She is Council and Board member of the Law Society of Scotland and is a participant on the Law Society of Scotland's Licensing Law Reform Committee. Janet is also a board member of the Scottish Tourism Forum, a council member of the British Institute of Innkeepers and is a member of the Scottish Trade Licensing Association.
Her remit is to develop Blackadders' offering in the hospitality, licensing and tourism sector through positive engagement with our existing clients and by identifying new clients amongst her many and varied contacts in the industry.
David Milne, partner and head of the business division says: "Licensing law is a bureaucratic minefield and we want to ensure that our clients maximise their business potential and adopt best practice. I am delighted that Janet has agreed to work with us; she is a very experienced and well-respected lawyer who will add depth to an already high-performing team. It is a very exciting opportunity for Blackadders and advances our strategy of being the leading East coast firm for people and for business."
