Farrell Fritz Launches its Ninth Blog: Lawful Libations

April 21, 2014

Farrell Fritz is pleased to announce that it has launched its ninth blog, Lawful Libations.  The blog is geared towards wineries, craft breweries and other spirits. 

The blog is authored by several attorneys across various practice areas.  Robert M. Connelly, a commercial litigation associate in the firm’s Water Mill office, spearheaded this blog.  “With the emergence of the alcoholic beverage and agro-tourism industries on Long Island recently, we wanted to create a forum for the owners and proprietors of Long Island’s wineries, craft breweries, distilleries and cideries to keep abreast of the latest legal and regulatory developments that may affect the industry,” he said.
