Practice Areas

Alcohol & Gambling Licensing and Compliance


Montana’s alcoholic beverage and gambling licensing laws are notoriously complicated. At Lawlor & Co., they are our primary practice area.  We work with both new license applicants and established business owners throughout Montana to help them navigate the regulatory hurdles of applications, license transfers, changes to business operations, financing and lending issues, and compliance matters.  Our clients include bars, restaurants, casinos, breweries, hotels, distilleries, and other businesses that require licensing from Montana DOR and DOJ.  Please let us know how we can help you.

Business Transactions


At Lawlor & Co., we can advise you about every step of a business start-up, purchase, or sale.  We will work collaboratively with you and anyone on your "team" (banker, accountant, real estate agent, and other attorneys) to help you achieve your goals.  From entity formation and structure, to drafting the deed, bills of sale, and other closing documents, we will assist you with each step in the process.

Estate Planning


It is important for every person to have an estate plan, whether your assets are modest or extensive.  At Lawlor & Co., we will assist you in making the important (but sometimes difficult) decisions that will give both you and your family the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a plan in place.  Whether the best plan for you involves a simple Will and a Power of Attorney, or a more complicated Trust or other arrangement, we will help you understand your options and prepare the appropriate documents.
