“Niall McCann and the Joelson team were fantastic in acquiring our new premises licence. It was by no means a straight forward case but Niall went above and beyond to get us the licence we wanted. We have recommended him and will certainly be using the company again.”

Open House London Limited

“Here at Open House London Ltd we have worked with Niall McCann at Joelson for a number of years. His technical knowledge and skill in advising on licensing generally (and securing premises licences for our new venues specifically) have been evident throughout. He’s an effective strategist and good communicator, but actually one of Niall’s greatest attributes is his commercial common sense, underpinned by an ability to really understand our business. He combines considerable experience of the industry with a personable and approachable manner, making him both accessible and highly effective. I would have no hesitation in recommending Niall to other operators in the hospitality sector.”
