When faced with a denial by the State of New York’s Department of Economic Development of its minority-owned (MBE) status and certification, our client, a 100% minority-owned general contractor, appealed the ruling with the expert assistance of partner Henry C. Chan, Esq. With two decades of expertise in minority- and women- owned certification issues, Henry successfully argued during a seven-hour appeal hearing that the contractor fully responded to the Department’s inquiries, that the Department failed to establish grounds for its denial, and that our client was denied full and fair due process when the Department attempted to make arguments not contained in the original denial.

An excellent result for our client, Henry proved once again that there is no substitute for experience when it comes to these types of issues.
