Testimonial from Richard Blau: Chair, Alcohol Beverage & Food Law Department at Gray Robinson

“The alcohol beverage industry is one of America’s most heavily-regulated commercial sectors. Its laws are varied, complex, and often far-from-intuitive. Which makes Sean O’Leary such a valuable asset to this esoteric area of law and regulation. Sean served for several years as an attorney with the Illinois Liquor Control Commission, and in that capacity worked with all tiers and all segments of America’s “three-tier” system. During that time, he addressed the wide range of trade practice, compliance and policy governance issues that constantly challenge industry members. I personally worked with Sean on matters for several alcohol industry clients over those years. In all of my interactions with Sean, he displayed an extraordinary depth of regulatory technical knowledge, as well as a broader understanding of policy concerns and objectives. Even in adversarial circumstances, Sean always comported himself in a professional manner that reflected integrity and brought credit to his agency. Sean’s departure from public service is a loss for Illinois government, but a big win for the private sector. I am happy to recommend Sean for regulated industry clients in need of compliance insight, guidance and support.”
