Williams Wilson
Government Permitting

Government regulations have a substantial impact on our lives, particularly business operations, and can stand as a substantial impediment to the success of a company and its goals. One way that government controls business activities is through the permitting process. Whether the issue involves local government zoning, a state environmental permit, or a professional license, government denials, revocations and penalties can have a great impact on your business.

When dealing with government permitting officials, it is essential to understand the basic law that governs the subject, be it statutes, rules or ordinances. Equally important is an understanding of the policies and practices of the permitting agency, which often are not expressed in statutes or rules. Agencies often have policies that affect how they look at particular permitting issues that may be crucial to obtaining or retaining an important permit or license. They also have policies that affect how penalties are imposed, and what compromise terms can be accepted when settlement is discussed.
