Government Permitting & Licensing
The attorneys in Berger Singerman's Government Permitting and Licensing Group represent a variety of private and public sector clients throughout Florida in regulatory matters before federal, state, regional and local agencies. The Group's wide range of expertise includes licensing or permitting for an array of projects and activities, such as developments involving wetlands, wastewater and stormwater management, mining, air emissions, coastal development, marina and dock siting, public drinking water systems, consumptive water use permitting, and in the transfer of fuel from one fuel company to another fuel company.
In addition, the Group assists clients in obtaining professional licenses and defending those holding licenses against agency regulatory actions, such as licenses held by contractors, insurance agents, alarm system installers, and alcoholic beverage purveyors. By working closely with government and regulatory agencies, developers and landowners, the Group has helped solve client problems from simple development entitlement issues to assisting in the environmental permitting of lengthy stretches of roads through 20 miles of highly sensitive wetlands in the Everglades and Florida Keys.
