Business License Defense

Business License Attorneys Serving California

Even if you aren’t in a healthcare related profession, there are a number of businesses and services that require a professional license to operate, and frequently these licenses are only acquired after hours of training and certification, not to mention payment of significant fees to city, state and local governments. Holding a valid business license allows a business owner to offer his or her product or service within the state, and gives customers the confidence of knowing that a business has complied with licensing and permitting requirements, providing a sense of security to its patrons.

Unfortunately, the procedures and laws governing business license discipline in California are often overwhelming for the typical licensee to understand and navigate. Even if you are simply applying for a new license, you may find that you need professional help to get approval. If something is missed, or improper documents submitted, it can delay or even result in denial of your business license application.

Dealing with often uncaring and downright cold state agency personnel can be overwhelming and frustrating, to say the least. Even the savviest business license holder or applicant for licensure may need help in protecting or acquiring such a license, which is where The Law Offices of Brown & Brown can help.

If you are not completely honest with the entity you are seeking a license from, or even if you innocently omit a seemingly minor detail on your application, your request will most likely be denied, leaving you frustrated and upset. We have vast experience in dealing with such licensing bodies and even recently saved a local retail business from certain closure by appealing a threatened revocation of a business license successfully before city business licensing section at a formal hearing. Immediately after we prevailed at the hearing, our client was able to return to his business which the city had shut down pending the outcome of the hearing. Not only our client, but the many employees and community members who depend on that business, were obviously elated with this result and we are proud to say that this business client is continuing and thriving.

It’s because of these often unforeseen circumstances that our attorneys are prepared to deal with the Board and licensing agency on your behalf. Attorney Adam B. Brown is able to assist and defend a multitude of business professionals and licenses in a number of areas, including:

• License applications rejections, license revocation, and license suspension
• Investigation and/or formal accusation by the licensing board
• License citation appeals
• Overturning Temporary Injunctions/Shutdown orders by local government authorities
• Many other possible actions against a business license and/or owner
