Malkin Law focuses on serving the legal needs of the alcohol and cannabis industries. We regularly assist clients in navigating the intricacies of federal and state-by-state alcohol beverage laws and draft industry-specific agreements, such as sponsorship agreements, agency agreements, bottling agreements, and distributor agreements. Prior to forming Malkin Law, I was an attorney at Pernod Ricard USA and a former Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan. But my passion for the beer, wine and spirits industry began as a journalist specializing in writing about the alcohol and hospitality industries, with articles appearing in such publications as SmartMoney, Beverage Media,, and Esquire. I regularly present to those in the alcohol beverage industry and those unfamiliar with the industry at conferences including the American Craft Distillers Association conference, the American Distilling Institute annual conference, Golden State of Cocktails, the New York Holiday Buying Show, Farm2Table Symposium, and Tales of the Cocktail.
