Trades & Crafts

The economic administrative law is highly relevant to anyone working or starting out in a trade or craft. Special rules apply to many businesses considered trades, such as the food and hospitality industries and operators of certain machinery and equipment. State licensing is required for some trades, or registering with authorities and the chamber of trade and commerce.

We specialize in trade, craft, restaurant and food law, assisting clients for example with registering as a business or trade and appealing rejected registrations. We are well versed in the applicable professional obligations, such as the legal requirements connected with learning and performing a particular trade, including exceptions to the master tradesman requirement.

Violations of trade and craft-related legal obligations often result in fines. We represent clients in such administrative offense cases as well.
