Association Counsel Joins The Wagoner Firm

Longtime Legal Counsel to the State Association, Jim Linnan, has joined The Wagoner Firm.

Jim is well-versed in representing those who are buying or selling existing hospitality businesses and those who are applying for licenses from the SLA. The Wagoner Firm is conveniently located at 150 State Street in downtown Albany, just two floors above the Association office. You can reach Jim at 518-449-5400 or at [email protected].
