Knowledge and experience to secure, maintain and protect licensed professionals

We start from the beginning with our clients who are seeking to obtain coveted licenses to conduct business in Illinois. We provide direction and advice on the often onerous application process and are with our clients for challenges and complaints brought by individuals and the issuing agency. Our lawyers have a regular presence at the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. Most importantly, they begin with a reputation of honesty and integrity for our clients and the licensees.

Whether dealing with a newly created license such as that recently created by the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, or the long-standing licenses required for other regulated industries and professionals, we have the knowledge and experience to expedite the process. It is to be expected that consumers and other users of services will inevitably bring complaints to the licensing agency. We at Slavin & Slavin have a proven track record of avoiding suspensions and revocations and minimizing or eliminating fines.

Our experience extends to the most serious proceedings seeking licensure suspension and revocation (matters that may be further complicated by ancillary criminal exposure) to actions involving alleged infractions for which the Department seeks restitution and fines. Depending on the nature and history of violations, the proposed fines can have a crippling impact on businesses operating with limited profit margins. We work on behalf of our professional clients to minimize the financial impact and suggest creative ways to satisfy the Department.

  • Our Firm also represents individuals and businesses in the often competitive and complex license application process required to do business in the State of Illinois.
