Chicago Changes the Rules for Small Businesses

Chicago business ordinances are numerous and can be hard to keep track of. Even the most careful small businesses receive citations from time to time—just look at the recent string of citations issued to Wicker Park businesses for window signs.

The Chicago Department of Administrative Hearings now requires that an attorney must represent all business corporations at administrative proceedings, including ordinance citation hearings. Due to a recent court case, the city has started enforcing this rule for the first time—meaning if you receive an ordinance violation citation, you need a lawyer!
