Protect Your Business With a Licensing Attorney
Governmental licensing is the official approval of you or your organization for a particular regulated activity. Licenses can be for something as familiar as driving a car to as rare as launching a satellite into orbit.
Licenses usually come with strings attached, meaning there are initial requirements to be met before issuance and conditions that must be completed on an ongoing basis to renew.
Applications: We can prepare and file application forms and supporting documents along with applications.
Appeals: In the event, an application is denied, or a license is suspended or revoked, our attorneys may be able to assist with appealing the decision, re-submitting a corrected application, and addressing the problem.
Disciplinary Proceedings: We can provide representation for licensees in disciplinary proceedings when there is an alleged violation of the terms of the license
Which Federal or State Regulations Govern Your Business?
Most business is subject to a variety of federal and state regulations. These regulations can come from many agencies and impact nearly every aspect of your business. As a result, it’s essential to understand which regulations apply to your business and ensure that you comply with all relevant laws.
If you’re not sure which regulations apply to your business, speaking with an attorney is the best place to start.
An attorney can help you identify the laws that apply to your specific business and ensure that you are in compliance with all applicable regulations. In addition, an attorney can guide you in navigating the regulatory landscape and ensuring that your business is positioned for success.
Complying with federal and state regulations can be time-consuming and expensive, but it’s essential to the success of your business. By taking the time to understand which laws apply to you and ensuring you comply, you can help protect your business from costly penalties and legal problems.
As long as there is no conflict between the state and federal regulations, they can generally be applied simultaneously and concurrently. Organizations must ensure that they adhere to both federal regulations and state regulations. At Easler Law, we can guide you through compliance with both state and federal laws.
Reduce Fines, Penalties, and Fees With An Attorney
Compliance means adhering to governmental agency regulations and guidelines continually. The key focus of compliance is to prevent adverse outcomes for companies and organizations and avoid violating regulations. Maintaining regulation within industries helps prevent harm to the public and the economy. There are many different aspects of compliance, such as drafting and amending policies, training employees, and staying up to date with new laws. Staying in compliance is for the company’s benefit. For example, if the company maintains an effective and compliant safety policy and continues to enforce it, not only will this compliance tend to reduce incidents of injuries at work, but it may reduce legal claims, improve workplace efficiency, and help retain employees.
In addition, our team can help navigate through state and local administrative laws, including:
Zoning and Land Use Regulations: We can help comply with all federal and local laws, apply for zoning and use changes, and ensure a smooth process for the development and improvement of land.
Chemical Testing Regulations: We can help ensure compliance with procedures for drug and alcohol testing regulations.
Work Safety Regulations: We can assist with implementing safety procedures, policies, and training that comply with federal and state requirements.
Administrative Procedures: We can explain and review complex procedures that may be difficult to understand or accomplish.
Compliance Regulations: We can help maintain your company in compliance by detecting potential violations and minimizing risks.
Business Regulations: We can assist with licensing and reporting requirements for regulated industries, from local tax and occupancy permits to EDGAR filings for reporting issuers.
Our goal is to take on the burden of compliance so that you can focus on the main objectives of your business. Engaging an attorney with knowledge and experience in administrative law and compliance is essential to prevent loss, lapse, or suspension of licenses, businesses, fines, and, in some cases, even imprisonment.
