13 Special events extended trading period for hotels and clubs

(1) In addition to the trading hours that apply under this Act to the licensed premises to which a hotel licence or a club licence relates, the regulations may prescribe a period during which liquor may be sold or supplied for consumption on any such licensed premises.

(2) Any such period may be prescribed only in relation to a specified day on which a special event is to be held or that immediately follows the day on which a special event is held. For the purposes of this subsection, “special event” means an event that the Minister considers to be of regional, State or national significance.

(3) A regulation under this section may apply to a specified class of hotel or club premises. Without limitation, any such class of hotel or club premises may be specified by reference to hotels or club premises that are located in a particular area (however described).

(4) This section does not authorise the sale, supply or consumption of liquor on any licensed premises contrary to a restriction or prohibition imposed by or under this Act in respect of the trading hours for the licensed premises.

Choosing the right legal team to defend your reputation and interests can be a difficult process.

However, it is always important to look at a firm’s experience and results when making this decision.

At Sydney Criminal Lawyers®, we have extensive experience defending and winning some of the most complex criminal matters – so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.

Our criminal law specialists will take the time in every case to carefully scrutinise all the evidence in order to identify problems with the prosecution case at an early stage in the proceedings.

Where issues are found, our lawyers will write to the prosecution asking to have the charges dropped on this basis – often sparing our clients the considerable time and expense associated with defended hearings.

However, should your matter proceed to court, our senior lawyers will represent you and present a strong defence case to maximise your chances of being found ‘not guilty.’

Our senior lawyers are highly skilled advocates who have been recognised for their expert knowledge of the criminal law, as well as their ability to obtain excellent results in difficult cases.

We can assist you in avoiding the harsh penalties imposed by the law if you simply wish to plead guilty – in these cases, our experienced advocates can prepare and present compelling sentencing submissions which focus on any positive factors of your case.
