Licensing Issues for Architects

Everyone knows the basics. In order to practice architecture, you must be licensed. This is a pretty straightforward process to follow:

  1. Earn your degree.
  2. Gain and document required experience.
  3. Pass the Architect Registration Examination.
  4. Submit for your license within your state.

Seems like an easy process to follow, but what happens if you want to practice in another state? Do you know if the state provides reciprocity? How do you earn a reciprocal architecture license in the state you wish to practice? Our attorneys are well versed in state regulations and can walk you through this process. We are committed to helping you build and grow your business.

Alternatively, what happens if your license is suspended or revoked for any reason? An architect would face suspension or revocation under the following conditions:

  • Criminal record
  • Encouraging unlicensed activity
  • Fraud
  • Impersonation
  • Negligent or willful misconduct
  • Signing off on the work of others

Earning your license is time-consuming and takes incredible hard work. It is our job to ensure that you take the proper steps to keep your license throughout your career. If you are facing suspension or revocation, it is imperative that you contact our office as soon as possible so that we can begin to build your case. We are here for you now, throughout the process, and long after your case has come to a conclusion.
