Over the last ten years, the global legal marijuana market has developed into a substantial industry generating global sales in the billions of dollars each year.
Despite this growth, the cannabis industry is highly regulated both in the United States and abroad. Particularly in the United States, there are conflicts between state and federal laws pertaining to the cultivation, sale, and use of cannabis products.

Our attorneys are adept at advising clients on state and federal regulatory requirements, licensing, company formation, financing transactions, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and intellectual property issues.
As more and more states allow regulated use of marijuana and federal laws regarding cannabis evolve, our team remains at the forefront of this industry and provides our clients guidance in navigating the rapidly changing legal landscape.
