A new legal practice specialising in the licensing sector has launched.
Riverview Law, the fixed-priced legal services business, has launched the operation with "eight of the UK’s leading licensing barristers".
Gerald Gouriet QC, Kevin de Haan QC, David Matthias QC, James Rankin, Jeremy Phillips, Gary Grant, Juan Lopez and Leo Charalambides all of Francis Taylor Building, have teamed up with Riverview Chambers.
The move will "significantly boost Riverview Law’s offering to large corporates in the retail, hospitality and entertainment sectors".
All eight will continue to practise at the Francis Taylor Building.
A statement read: "The Riverview Law licensing team offers barristers with expertise at all levels of call. Their experience ranges from routine matters such as alcohol licensing, online and offline gaming and entertainment venue licensing through to major contested hearings for the UK’s leading venues."
Gerald Gouriet QC said: “We’ve all been impressed with the way in which Riverview Law has successfully created a structure to take advantage of the changes taking place in the legal services market. We are excited about the prospect of being part of the Riverview team.”
Adam Shutkever, COO of Riverview Law, added: “The arrival of eight barristers of such prominence in this specialist field is a significant development for our large corporate customers."
Since launching a year ago, Riverview Law has 57 members practising across all areas of business law.
