Taco Bell and John Gaunt Solitors: Expert Witness to facilitate a Late Night License

8 Sep 2021

We were approached by John Gaunt Solicitors to work with their client Taco Bell to write an expert witness report of the management and operations of a Taco Bell in Newcastle that had been refused a late night license.

Our expert team worked with the clients to:

  1. Perform a robust and neutral audit that independently reviewed the strengths and weaknesses of the current and future operations, proposed trading and operating practices. This included:
  • Undertaking detailed telephone conversations on the restaurant operation and management procedures
  • Performing a thorough desk-based review of:
    • The policies, practices, trading and training
    • Area-specific research
  • Fully reviewing documents such as Committee reports, notice of Appeal, Statement of Licensing Policy and the Framework Hours Policy
  • Undertaking specialist data research such as Police Crime Data and┬áPublic Health Data
  • Visiting the premises

2. Write an independent expert report in relation to the proposed 24hr operation of the Taco Bell restaurant

The Result

The client secured the 24-hour trading license
