Post Polak’s Hospitality and Alcoholic Beverage Practice Welcomes Richard D. Nasca

June 5, 2023

Post Polak is pleased to welcome new Counsel, Richard D. Nasca, to our Hospitality and Alcoholic Beverage practice.

As an experienced transactional attorney, Rich will be providing legal services to the firm’s alcoholic beverage industry clients. He is involved in advising restaurants, hotels, bars, liquor stores, manufacturers, suppliers, wholesalers and distributors regarding alcoholic beverage laws and regulations. He provides counsel with respect to the often complicated and little-known rules and laws governing the manufacturing, distribution, sale and service of alcoholic beverages and the acquisition, sale and transfer of all types of alcoholic beverage licenses.

Rich started his legal career as a law clerk with the State of New Jersey, Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control. He was later sworn in as a Deputy Attorney General with the Division. He served as a Deputy Attorney until 2009, when he went into private practice where he worked at a law firm that represented clients in all tiers of the alcoholic beverage industry.

During his time at the Division, Rich was involved with all aspects of alcoholic beverage regulation and enforcement. For most of his tenure with the Division, he was assigned to the Enforcement Bureau, where he assisted with investigations and prosecuted licensees who violated the State’s alcoholic beverage control laws.

Having joined Post Polak, Rich is now reunited with his former colleagues and mentors from the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, former Director Jerry Fischer and former Counsel to the Director Wes Geiselman. Our team, headed by Douglas Sherman and including David Epstein and Siobhan Beere, is now one of the largest and most experienced alcoholic beverage law practice in the State of New Jersey.
