RALEIGH, N.C.—Johnny Loper, Raleigh litigator and administrative law attorney, was on the program at the Second Annual Occupational Licensing Agencies Best Practice Seminar held at the North Carolina State Bar in Raleigh on April 12.  

Loper presented on “Resolving Scope of Practice/Jurisdictional Issues between Licensing Boards.”  His remarks included advice on formal and informal ways of resolving issues that arise when professionals are licensed by two different professional boards, or when there is overlap in the actions permitted by licensees of different licensing boards. 

The seminar was attended by about 100 licensing agency attorneys, administrators, and executives.  The program is especially timely given the consideration being given by the North Carolina General Assembly to dissolving some of the State’s 50+ professional licensing boards, combining or transferring the authority of some boards to other boards, and instituting additional oversight and reporting requirements for the remaining boards.

Johnny Loper is a veteran business litigator with more than three decades of experience in bet-the-company cases. Loper also serves as the Managing Partner of the Womble Carlyle’s Raleigh office.
