Laura Collier is an attorney at Strike & Techel, a law firm that focuses exclusively on alcoholic beverage law, and she is proud to serve as counsel to the North Carolina Craft Brewers Guild. Her first job was at a North Carolina brewery. Although she was a less-than-successful hostess, the job was first of many in NC’s beer and wine industry and the job helped spark her passion for fermented beverages. Laura enjoys using her practical industry experience to help businesses with their legal needs, and represents a wide variety of alcoholic beverage businesses, including producers, importers, and retailers.
