Anderson and his team will join Burch & Cracchiolo attorney Jake D. Curtis to create the most experienced and high volume liquor licensing practice in Arizona.

Curtis is a seasoned veteran attorney who has been the liquor licensing practice chair since 2017 shepherding clients through the upheaval and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. He also continues to handle cases in commercial litigation, employment law and serious personal injury/wrongful death cases.  

In his liquor licensing practice, Anderson will continue to provide advice and counsel concerning a full range of issues related to the manufacture, importation, distribution, and sale of spirituous liquors within the state of Arizona. He has represented all types of clients in all facets of issues relating to the regulation of spirituous liquors including producers, wholesalers/distributors, importers and retailers, including national chains and regional grocery stores, convenience markets, drug stores, restaurants, bars, hotels, management companies, homeowner associations and golf courses.

In addition to his liquor licensing practice, Anderson has a robust practice representing court appointed fiduciaries, specifically Court Appointed Receivers and Bankruptcy Trustees. With arguably the largest dedicated receivership practice in the State, he will continue to provide clients with the legal resources for the successful administration of any receivership or court appointed fiduciary engagement. Anderson’s success in the representation of receivers stems from decades of experience in the area, comprehensive understanding of the legal and business issues that arise in any type of receivership, as well as focus on providing efficient, timely, and cost-effective legal counsel to clients while preserving the assets that are the subject of the Receivership Estate for distribution to the creditors.
