Welcome to Strike & Techel,
a San Francisco firm that practices exclusively in the field of alcohol
beverage law.

We represent Wineries, Breweries & Distillers, Importers & Distributors and Retailers of all kinds. We provide expert counsel in areas such as Trademarks, Marketing & Promotions, Regulatory Actions and Licensing.

Regulatory Actions

The alcohol industry is heavily regulated at the federal level by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) and at the state level by individual state Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) departments. We have experience in dealing with these agencies to resolve accusations against licensees for a wide variety of violations, including unlawful sale of alcohol to minors, trade practice violations, exceeding license privileges, and more. We generally try to resolve these matters cooperatively by mutual agreement between the licensee and the agency, but we have also represented many licensees in hearings and proceedings before administrative law judges.
