Biography

In 1987, after ten successful years as Chief Counsel to the Illinois Liquor Control Commission, Irene F. Bahr established the Bahr Law Firm, which in 2019 became the Bahr Anderson Law Group, LLC. Our firm is one of the few firms in Illinois that concentrates its practice in advising and defending members of the Beverage Alcohol Industry, from the smallest mom and pop business, to large national and international companies who wish to sell, manufacture, or distribute alcohol anywhere throughout the State of Illinois.

Irene has a national reputation for handling these matters in Illinois. Whether you are buying an existing business or starting your own, licensing in the alcohol beverage industry can be a daunting task. She will be part of your team, leading you through the steps of local, state, and federal licensing to a successful conclusion and helping you avoid the pitfalls that can stop you from having a successful business.

If you need advice on trade practices, happy hours regulations, securing licenses, representation at violation hearings, manufacturing, distributing, or retailing in any location throughout Illinois, including the City of Chicago, Irene's extensive experience and working relationships aim to navigate you through these complex waters with ease. Her philosophy is simple: help clients avoid problems by doing it the right way.
