Our team routinely represents an array of health care providers in all aspects of the professional licensing process, including advice and guidance regarding applicable laws and policies, assisting with issues of compliance or employment, and defending disciplinary actions if needed.

If you find yourself faced with a complaint against your license or other investigative review initiated by state licensure authorities, we have the experience to help you navigate that process and protect your best interests.

The types of licensing issues routinely handled by our professional licensing attorneys include:

  • Advising on reporting requirements for employment of health care professionals
  • Assisting health care professionals with responses to licensing investigations
  • Attending and assisting clients during interactions with licensing board staff or investigators
  • Defending clients through all aspects of disciplinary proceedings, including contested hearings
  • Pursuing alternative dispute resolutions for disciplinary charges
  • Advising and defending clients in the event of criminal charges

A wide range of health care professionals are regulated by states’ licensing boards within a larger state agency framework. In South Carolina, for example, the Department of Labor Licensing and Regulation (“LLR”) is the agency comprised of a number of licensing bodies whose responsibilities include licensing and disciplinary oversight. Investigations by these boards can have a lasting impact on your career and your livelihood. Our team of lawyers works closely with doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, and an array of other professionally licensed providers facing professional licensing issues that could impact their ability to practice.
