Craft lawyering in Alberta since 1915 – since the days of beer in wooden barrels we’ve been helping Alberta and Northern businesses of all kinds with keeping the wheels on, and the customers happy. With offices in Calgary, Edmonton and Yellowknife, we are a regional firm and see Alberta and NWT’s craft brewers and craft distillers as kindred spirits – home-grown businesses proud of their passionate, community-minded and collaborative approach to business.

Our feature taps – no rotating seasonal law practices here – always available, experienced advice in the many legal areas a brewer, distiller or brewing industry partner could need. Like trademarks, copyright, patenting, licensing, corporate and shareholder issues, corporate finance, leasing, employment, distribution and other contracts, immigration, and, for when the schwarzbier hits the fan, litigation services.

As always - please lawyer up responsibly. Contact Richard Stobbe or Tom O’Reilly to answer your questions about the legal side of owning and operating a craft brewing or distilling operation.
