EM³’s Cannabis Law Practice is well positioned to advise and represent clients engaging in every level of the cannabis, CBD, and hemp space on pertinent industry-related issues and transactions. Our attorneys assist clients with their existing and start-up operations in navigating state and local licensing processes, regulatory compliance, business planning, cannabis business entity formation and registration, partnerships and joint venture formation, product production and branding, negotiating and drafting cannabis-related agreements, banking issues, questions of administrative law and enforcement, employment law issues, and a wide range of insurance and commercial litigation disputes. The Cannabis Group seeks to work with clients to help them navigate through the evolving requirements governing cannabis operations, including the tensions that often exist between federal and state laws.
We assist our cannabis-related clients in understanding and assessing the federal and state regulatory framework for cannabis, applications for licenses to operate and related administrative matters, commercial litigation, negotiating and documenting investments, joint ventures, and mergers and acquisitions, conducting due diligence on the targets of such transactions, and day-to-day regulatory advice and general business counsel.
We have experience working for highly regulated businesses, serving as both in-house and outside counsel, and are familiar with navigating the constantly evolving matrix of state compliance regulations. We also have deep experience in corporate and financing work, including banking, entity formation and venture capital.
EM³’s deep commitment to the cannabis space is best reflected by our leadership in trade organizations in this industry. Together, we are working on national issues affecting the legal cannabis and hemp industry as a whole.
