In March 2015 a serious disorder broke out in the bar of the King William Hotel in Greenwich, London. The police launched a summary review, describing the incident as like an "old-style Wild West bar brawl". The premises' licence was suspended as an interim step. Gary Grant appeared for the venue at the full review hearing and successfully argued against the revocation of the licence or a cut-back in hours. Instead the licensing sub-committee agreed to impose a series of conditions proposed by the licence holder. The interim suspension was also lifted at the conclusion of the hearing.
(Gary Grant was instructed by Fabien Simms of FSL Consultants)
