After many years working in house in the wine industry, I founded a Napa, California, based law firm dedicated to providing expert guidance on the complex process of winery transactions and regulatory integration. Excited to have my Director of Integration Strategy join me, we bring a combined 25 years of experience in successfully navigating the labyrinth of permitting and licensing, distributor contracts, buyer/seller due diligence, data room review and assessment of material due diligence issues, and are well-placed to lead wineries, law firms and brokers through the transactional process. Let us be your guide.
Working in the wine industry for over 15 years, I have held general counsel positions at Treasury Wine Estates and Duckhorn Wine Company, guiding the regulatory integration of Treasury’s acquisition of the Diageo wine portfolio and Duckhorn’s integrations of Calera and Kosta Browne. Alicia founded Cronbach Law Group PC in May 2019 to focus on steering wineries, law firms and brokers through the complex maze of winery transactions and integration.
