Professional Licensing


Since professional licensing and registration standards vary considerably throughout the country and abroad, it is essential for all construction professionals to seek counsel on the requirements necessary to participate in particular projects.

Zetlin & De Chiara regularly advises on these issues—whether in the design professional's home jurisdiction, or in any jurisdiction where the design professional practices. This is especially important now, when most practices span multiple jurisdictions.  It is vital that a comprehensive evaluation of licensing requirements be considered in formulating an adequate corporate strategy.

Equally important to the licensed design professional is proper representation in disciplinary proceedings commenced by licensing boards and public agencies. We have appeared on our clients’ behalf in hearings before panels, boards, and agencies regarding suspension, revocation and other disciplinary measures all over the United States. 

We also leverage our longstanding relationships with counsel throughout the world to better assist you with offshore compliance issues.

    State laws and regulations affecting architectural practice are voluminous, conflict from state to state, and can impact fundamental aspects of doing business—including licensing, entity formation, marketing, branding and solicitations. For those unaware of or failing to heed the rules, these laws and regulations can result in disciplinary proceedings. This seminar will highlight specific areas where firms, often inadvertently, breach local laws or ethical rules, and will address when regulatory authorities are likely to look for violations.
