On October 25, 2014, Stark & Stark’s Beer & Spirits Group presented to local entrepreneurs “Legal Considerations for Start-Up Distillers in New Jersey” at Cooper River Distillers in Camden, New Jersey. Enacted in December of 2013, N.J.S.A. 33:1-10.3d allows for Craft Distillery Licenses to be issued in New Jersey.

Marshall Kizner, co-chair of Stark & Stark’s Beer & Spirits, group commented, “The new distillery license offers exciting opportunities for both local economies and entrepreneurs.  The Beer & Spirits group is here to help businesses navigating not only the new law, but also related issues, like employment policies, land use and zoning issues, real estate leases, vendor purchase agreements and protecting intellectual property rights.”
