Handling professional licensing and regulatory compliance matters for licensed professionals is an area in which Lemery Greisler's attorneys not only have extensive experience but excel. In this practice area, our representation has been largely of real estate professionals and physicians, nurses, and other health care providers. To these professionals, the Firm provides a full range of representation before various New York State regulatory agencies, including the Department of State, the Health Department, the Office of Professional Medical Conduct, and the Education Department, in defense of disciplinary actions to suspend or revoke a person's license. In these cases, we handle all phases of a complaint, from the initial response and investigative interview to client representation at hearings, appeals, and court review of the administrative process.
Our representation of real estate professionals is particularly broad in scope. The Firm provides counsel to numerous boards and associations of REALTORS® and their multiple listing services, including counsel on matters of corporate governance and the interrelation of not-for-profit and business corporations. We have in-depth experience with the professional standards process and arbitration of contractual disputes between board and association members. Our Firm has developed standard forms for board and association use and customized forms for a board or association's particular needs, and we have drafted and shaped legislation favorable to the real estate community in New York State. In addition, our attorneys frequently present seminars and lectures to real estate licensees on topics of significant concern to the industry, including agency, contract, and anti-trust laws; fair housing standards; and advertising, records retention, disclosure obligations, and general risk-reduction practices.
