There is a whole other complicated layer of law that exists separately from the civil and criminal systems. It consists of regulatory and rule-making agencies, and in South Carolina there is an Administrative Law Court, where anyone affected by an action of a state agency can seek relief.
At Willoughby & Hoefer, our experienced attorneys are well-versed in this area, from permitting to licensing to administrative hearings and beyond.
There are many different professions or occupations that require licenses, such as doctors, accountants, and real estate brokers. We can help you make sure your application for a professional license is in order, and that the process between application and determination runs smoothly.
We can also help you obtain a local, state, or federal permit, such as an environmental or construction permit for your development project or alcohol license for your restaurant.
Our administrative law attorneys have significant experience in appearing before South Carolina’s boards and commissions and the South Carolina Administrative Law Court, Circuit Court, Court of Appeals, and Supreme Court on administrative matters. We can work to protect your legal rights as well as help you meet your obligations.
We also understand that there is no better time to offer input than when a rule or regulation is being developed. We have worked with numerous agencies as they have drafted rules and regulations and worked through the process at the Legislature, ensuring that our clients’ concerns have been heard on the front end.
These areas all require experience to navigate, and we have it.
