Below are some common types of cases we handle:

The Department of Business Regulations oversees business licenses for industries including banking, insurance, securities, charitable organizations, gaming and athletics, cannabis, building professionals, and health insurance. We assist our clients in obtaining the correct licensure to operate legally in their field. Each industry has rules and regulations for obtaining a business license and many steps require extensive paperwork. We make sure all requirements are met or exceeded, completed on time and submitted properly to get your business up and running as soon as possible.

Occasionally, businesses can lose their licenses when accused of negligence, fraud, or misconduct. If the DBR receives administrative complaints or issues violations of compliance, the business may also lose their license. We assist businesses in avoiding the loss of license entirely, or getting their license(s) reinstated as soon as possible so that the business can resume normal operations. Whether our clients have received a preliminary audit letter, or have already lost their license, we are ready to step in and put things back in order.

The Department of Environmental Management oversees environmental law, permitting, remediation, and enforcement actions. Our work representing clients before the DEM is often an essential step in getting a proposed development project in motion, and is necessary for the property to be considered financeable by banking lenders. Clients who require representation against the DEM often are developers or property owners whose plans and permits are affected by DEM regulations or environmental remediation requirements. Our clients include individual property owners and large development corporations.

The RI Department of Health oversees the health and well-being of all Rhode Islanders, by provision of appropriate health and social care services, both in clinical settings such as hospitals, and in the community through nursing, social work and other professional services.

The types of cases we handle involving the DOH often concern insurance companies, their coverage of conditions, and health benefits. We also represent clients in cases concerning quality of care received and consumer healthcare rights.
