Apply for licenses and permits with confidence

Some permits require filling out a simple online application that takes 5 minutes. Other licenses, such as a Canadian Alchohol License, can be complicated, take a year and cost upwards of $300,000 to purchase from a private party.

Whatever the nature of the licenses you need, having a lawyer on your team allows you to enter the application process with the confidence. You won’t have to guess about whether you’re filling out the forms correctly. Your chances of success go up while your stress goes down.

As a LegalShield member, you can submit applications for review by your lawyer prior to filing. Also, you can have your lawyer make phone calls and write letters to government agencies to facilitate the approval process for no additional fee.
