Cheers to a New Addition to our Hospitality and Wine Teams!

DW Fox Tucker is pleased to announce the appointment of Alex Bastian to the firm as a Senior Associate.

Alex is a specialist hospitality lawyer and joins the firm’s Hospitality & Licensing and Wine teams. He has extensive experience in the sector and has acted for a broad range of clients across the industry including hotels, wineries, restaurants, clubs, nightclubs and pop-up operators.

Head of Commercial Law, William Esau said Alex brought a valuable skill set to this growing unit within the Commercial team.

“Having specialised in hospitality law for five years, Alex is well versed in all issues and has acted on behalf of licensee clients as well as those on the other side of the bar – no pun intended – such as councils and residents. His in-depth knowledge complements that of our team and he’ll be an effective advocate for and advisor to our clients.”

Alex has represented clients in matters such as liquor licensing, gaming, prosecutions, breaches, Licensing Court work, compliance and applications to the Licensing Authority. He has also assisted clients with various planning and development matters. His understanding of the client side of the industry is further enhanced by his own managerial background in hospitality, both in Adelaide and Halifax, Canada.

Alex said he is excited to join the firm’s Hospitality & Licensing and Wine teams.

“I have a passion for hospitality in general, as so much culture surrounds the industry. I want to build on the existing hospitality practice and contribute to us being recognised as leaders in the field.”

The hospitality industry operates in an increasingly competitive market and Alex is well positioned to take on the challenges our clients face and equally enthusiastic about the task.

He said, “One of the challenges for the industry is over regulation. But that’s partly what we’re here for. The other is growing competition. Licensees have to do all they can to make their mark and stand out from the crowd.”

“We will help our clients make the most of their licensed business and take advantage of what is available to them, so they can provide the best facilities and service to their patrons.”
