The Hembree Law Firm PLLC

Wineries, Distilleries & Breweries

Dan Hembree’s love for the industry is derived from helping his brother and sister in law, Ryan and Julie Hembree, grow their craft distillery, Skip Rock Distillers.  Owners of wineries, distilleries and breweries have many important and difficult choices to make.  The choice of business entity can have a significant impact on liability, taxation, control, and ease of transferability.  We understand the financing options available to you.  From venture capital and public grants, to traditional debt financing, we can help you navigate the many complex issues inherent in financing your passion.

You have put everything into your craft and we help protect your hard work and investment.  We register and protect your name, design, and trademark from infringement by competitors so that you continue to stand out in an increasingly crowded marketplace.  The industry has some of the most complex rules and regulations regarding distribution and sales.  Not only do they vary by state, but the regulatory landscape is evolving at a rapid pace.  We are versed in assisting producers with licensing and distribution contracts that protect you while ensuring you can grow your consumer base.

If you would like to discuss the needs of your winery, distillery or brewery with someone that understands your passion, or just want to chat about the latest release, please contact Dan Hembree.
