Clifton Davies and Tante Marie: a recipe for success. Nobody has more experience of professional cookery training than Tante Marie and in gaining us our new licence, Suzanne’s exceptional experience in her area of expertise proved to be the essential ingredient

We were fortunate to be introduced to David and Suzanne at Clifton Davies Consultancy early in the process of establishing our start-up gambling company, Stakes & Ladders. From our first meeting they have consistently exceeded our expectations and have been like a fully committed member of our team ever since. The value of their deep industry knowledge and well established reputation is enhanced by their straightforward and pragmatic approach to business

David and Suzanne have handled our licensing matters for our seven London venues since 2011. They have brought with them a thorough understanding of licensing law and procedures and have steered us through the minefield of the new Sexual Entertainment Venue licensing and the regulatory challenges it presents to table dancing operators. They have taken great care to understand the nature of our business and provide invaluable practical and commercial advice. They are an important part of The Secrets Group.
