Jason Thorndycraft

Operations Director, Novus Leisure

"I have worked with Michael for the last 3 years. He has helped transform our approach and effectiveness as a company in all matters relating to licensing. He not only deals with all pro-active auditing and planning, but also supports all necessary reactive situations. He has helped massively in freeing up the operational team's time to focus on their key responsibilities whilst he helps deal with the ever increasing licensing burden being placed on the venues. He is always available and always offers the highest level of service and professionalism. I have no hesitation in recommending his service."

Gary Grant

Barrister, Ely Place Chambers

"As a licensing barrister who is instructed to act both for and against licensed venues, unusually I have experienced both the benefits and detriments of having Michael Watson and Licence Consultants involved in a licensing case - whether it be an application, review or on appeal. In short: if they are on my client's side I experience the benefit. If not, the detriment. Their experience and professionalism is respected by sub-committees and courts. I can recommend their services to all those involved in the licensed trade."

Craig Doyle

Group Operations Director, Maxwell's Restaurants, Clubs & Bars, London

"Licence Consultants provides precisely what an operator needs - quality and effective advice in all licensing matters and often beyond. We as a high volume West End company have relied on them to ensure we are not only up-to-date with current legislation and best practice procedures but as a great source of information for all issues affecting the licensing trade. An excellent service and one we would not be without."

Nick House

Founder - Brompton Brands & Nick House Entertainment Ltd

"Michael Watson's professionalism, integrity and expertise have made an essential dimension to our business."

Piers Adam

Mahiki, Whisky Mist, The Brompton Club and The Punch Bowl

"Michael Watson is an integral member of our team and I value his experience and knowledge immensely. In the leisure sector, a premises Licence is the main asset of the business; to lose it is potentially disastrous. Likewise, to gain a Licence or an extension of hours is equally potentially rewarding. Michael Watson is my insurance policy to protect my business and my advisor on how to improve it."
