Riverview Law, the fixed-priced legal services business, has launched a licensing practice with eight of the UK’s leading licensing barristers. Gerald Gouriet QC, Kevin de Haan QC, David Matthias QC, James Rankin, Jeremy Phillips, Gary Grant, Juan Lopez and Leo Charalambides all of Francis Taylor Building, will team up with Riverview Chambers in a move that will significantly boost Riverview Law’s offering to large corporates in the retail, hospitality and entertainment sectors. In line with the Riverview Chambers model, all eight will also continue to practise at Francis Taylor Building. The Riverview Law licensing team offers barristers with expertise at all levels of call. Their experience ranges from routine matters such as alcohol licensing, online and offline gaming and entertainment venue licensing through to major contested hearings for the UK’s leading venues. Gerald Gouriet QC says: “We’ve all been impressed with the way in which Riverview Law has successfully created a structure to take advantage of the changes taking place in the legal services market. We are excited about the prospect of being part of the Riverview team.” Adam Shutkever, the COO of Riverview Law, says: “The arrival of eight barristers of such prominence in this specialist field is a significant development for our large corporate customers. “The combination of their market-leading expertise and Riverview Law’s structure, technology platform and efficient workflow management means we can offer a highly efficient and cost- effective proposition across the spectrum of licensing work, from complex contentious work through to regular recurring legal activity. “Our customer-focused approach to legal services has struck a chord not only with large organisations but also with senior members of the profession, who have chosen to join Riverview Chambers.” Since launching a year ago, Riverview Law has attracted some of the leading names from the Bar. It now has 57 members practising across all areas of business law.
