The issues and challenges confronting the cannabis industry are numerous, as are the opportunities to grow and thrive. Operating entities, landlords and investors in this young but dynamic field need experienced and skilled advisors who understand the cannabis industry and who can deliver valuable results based on unique business goals.
Since 2010, members of the Husch Blackwell team have helped clients navigate the complex and ever-changing regulations governing the state legal sale and use of cannabis. Additionally, the entire firm serves as a resource when the team is dealing with highly complex and novel legal issues on behalf of cannabis clients.
Our team counsels clients on a variety of transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings (public and private), debt and equity financings, and corporate restructurings. We also provide ongoing sophisticated legal advice regarding regulatory issues, intellectual property, tax, employment and other general corporate issues.
Our representative clients in the cannabis industry include medical and retail centers, medical and retail cultivations, manufacturers of infused products, testing facilities, marijuana technology companies, industrial hemp farms, landlords, private equity funds, credit unions and security companies. We also counsel investors for these companies.
