From our base on the Gold Coast, one of Australia's favourite lifestyle playgrounds, the team at Hickey Lawyers is perfectly positioned to advise on all aspects of liquor and gaming licensing and legislation.

We have developed strong relationships with the relevant governing and administering bodies to ensure we consistently deliver strategic and timely advice.

Hickey Lawyers acts for owners and operators of hotels, pubs and clubs, nightclubs, restaurants, resorts, tourism and accommodation venues.

We can help you to procure all forms of liquor and gaming machine licenses, Chief Executive Approval to Liquor and Gaming Management Agreements and establish new licensed venues, whether in retail centres, land subdivisions or volumetric and mixed body corporate developments.

We advise on liquor and gaming legislation and compliance issues relating to licensed venues. We can also help you with associated business advisory matters including employment, consultancy, supply, management and service provider agreements.
