CannabisLaw

State laws regulating the marijuana industry are changing with each voting cycle leading to marijuana-related businesses (MRBs) rapidly emerging across the nation.

Marijuana-Related Businesses (MRBs)

The outcome of these entities hinges on compliance with state and local government regulations, which can be cumbersome to navigate. We leverage our unique experience and understanding of the cannabis industry to help MRBs create efficiencies and mitigate operational risks.

Our work with local government leaders and access to in-house practice groups in corporate law, intellectual property, labor & employment, litigation, real estate and Taylor English Decisions provides a turnkey offering for MRBs. From production inquiries to dispensary set-ups to fully integrated operations, our cannabis practice group sets MRBs up for long-term success.

Municipality-Focused

Currently, all cannabis rules and regulations fall under state and local government jurisdiction. Tied to this governance is the need for a practical framework with in-market application. The counsel that our alcohol licensing, regulatory and compliance practice provides municipalities and counties enables us to offer similar counsel to local governments and private companies in the cannabis industry. Harnessing our background with government entities, we guide clients on the development and implementation of regulatory rules and guidelines – all while sidestepping red tape. From license procurement to factory requirements and dispensary statutes, we are a resource for governments and private entities as they shape local regulations.
