Attorneys who know the San Antonio hospitality industry

Downtown San Antonio is a thriving neighborhood, so opening and operating a bar or restaurant there can be an exciting endeavor. At Tiwari + Bell, PLLC in Helotes, TX, our attorneys understand the unique needs of bar and restaurant owners. One of our attorneys even helped build a bar, so he has dealt firsthand with the considerations – including budgetary limitations – that must be taken into account. We leverage our personal experience to counsel you and help guide your business to success.

Finding the right real estate for your business

One of the first things you will need to do before hanging your shingle is determine a location for your business. Depending on your specific needs and finances, you may decide to purchase real estate, or you may lease a commercial space. We can assist with negotiating real estate contracts and drawing up lease agreements, and will always thoroughly explain your options to you so that you are never left in the dark about any potential risks.

Obtaining a liquor license

If you will be serving liquor at your establishment, you will need a valid liquor license. If you are caught selling liquor without one, there can be severe legal repercussions, and you may even lose your business. Our Helotes attorneys can help you fill out the proper paperwork you will need to apply for a liquor license in the municipality in which your restaurant or bar is located.

Why employee handbooks matter

It is easy to get lost in the fun and fast-paced environment of a bar or restaurant – a place where the goal is to have a good time. However, if you are an owner and become too relaxed, you may find yourself dealing with legal problems you had not planned for. One of the best ways to avoid potential conflicts within your business is to ensure an up-to-date employee handbook is in place. Our Texas law firm will ensure that your employee handbook is customized for your business and covers all topics of import, such as discrimination, compensation, work schedules, safety, technology usages, and leave policies.
