Regulatory Crimes

San Francisco Regulatory Crimes Lawyers

Licensing and Regulatory or Environmental Violations

State agencies and boards regulate many businesses and professions, while other professions are governed by federal laws. It is important to resolve charges of regulatory and licensing violations in order to keep working in your profession or operating your business. It is equally important when you are charged with a crime to remember that the charge can cause problems with licensing and regulatory officials.

At Sugarman & Cannon, we represent clients before agencies and boards that license and regulate professions and businesses. Our more than 30 years of experience handling such matters allows us to quickly recognize the significant issues quickly and begin developing arguments to support your case.

If you are facing a licensing board hearing or are charged with a violation of federal regulations, contact an attorney familiar with administrative and regulatory law.
