The Agarunov Law Firm handles all types of licensing issues in the states of New York and New Jersey, including occupational, liquor and other government licensing.  We will help clients obtain, transfer and defend against any issues with a license.

Licensing laws can be difficult to navigate. We have extensive experience in preparing and filing the documents necessary for license applications, renewals and appeals. We understand the time and financial constraints our clients face, and our goal is to make the entire process as smooth and stream-lined as possible. We take a cost-effective approach to each client's situation and will work to ensure our clients have the licenses they need to protect their business and their occupation.

Occupational license

Professionals are dependent on proper licensing in order to work in their specialized field. Agarunov Law Firm attorneys represent a wide array of professionals, including:
  • Health care professionals such as physicians, nurses, chiropractors, dentists, physician assistants and physical therapists
  • Health care facilities such as home health care agencies, assisted living and medical facilities, adult day health centers, and dialysis and ambulatory surgery centers
  • Ancillary health care entities such as pharmacies, ambulance companies, medical and surgical suppliers, and substance abuse programs
  • Professionals such as accountants, educators, engineers, financial advisors, childcare workers and real estate brokers

We will explain the requirements needed to obtain a license, file initial applications and renewal applications, and help our clients comply with recertification requirements.

Our attorneys are skilled advocates when it comes to representing licensed professionals in cases of license suspension or revocation and other disciplinary actions. We will represent our clients at licensure board hearings, in insurance investigations, and during hospital peer review and other actions. We will guide them through the entire investigation, hearing and appeal process.

Liquor license

The attorneys at Agarunov Law Firm are experienced in all aspects of liquor licensing, including retail and wholesale permits and import/export permits. They have extensive knowledge of ABC Law and other statutes in the states of New York and New Jersey.

We will help clients obtain a new liquor license or transfer an existing license as well as help them obtain a sidewalk café or cabaret license. Our attorneys will provide counsel on regulations pertaining to the liquor industry, such as rules concerning gift bags and temporary permits. We will make sure our clients understand and are in compliance with regulations relating to unlawful sale to minors, acceptable forms of identification when purchasing liquor, how old employees must be to work in a liquor establishment and how old a person must be to serve beer to patrons.

Our skilled attorneys will represent clients before the Liquor Authority Board in the event they face liquor violations, closings or hearings.

Ambulance and ambulette license

The experienced attorneys at Agarunov Law firm have extensive knowledge about basic and advanced life support ambulance and ambulette companies in New York and New Jersey. We will assist clients in obtaining a national provider identifier, prepare and file the initial or renewal application, and assist with Medicare and Medicaid certification. We will make sure our clients are in compliance with regulations set by the Taxi and Limousine Commission and the department of health, and provide counsel on insurance, staffing and CEU requirements, record-keeping, equipment maintenance and driver certification requirements. We will also help in the acquisition or sale of an ambulance or ambulette company.


Agarunov Law Firm represents the plaintiff or the defendant in licensing issues. Our experienced attorneys are forceful client advocates at administrative hearings, during investigative interviews and during judicial reviews. We will defend against allegations of misconduct or sexual impropriety, allegations of malpractice and charges of incompetence. We will defend or sue in the event of breach of contract and franchise or dealer disputes.

Our first choice if a dispute arises is negotiation and mediation; however, we will litigate in a cost-efficient manner if it is in the best interest of our client.
