Licensing specialist marks move to Scotland

Have your say

Cementing a move into Scotland was one of the highlights of the last year for John Gaunt & Partners, the leading Yorkshire licensing specialist, based in Sheffield.

The Omega Court-based firm’s founder, John Gaunt, is hailed as a great communicator with sound judgement.

And the firm’s clients include Burton-based independent brewery and pub group Marston’s and the Bramwell Pub Company, one of the top 10 largest managed pub companies in the country.

DLA Piper’s second-ranked, Sheffield-based licensing team’s notable successes during the last year include assisting with a large-scale refurbishment, undertaken by Sheffield University and a number of corporate and restructuring transactions.
