The Resources You Need to Capitalize on New Market Growth Opportunities.

As a national leader in Cannabis, Hemp, and Psychedelics, we provide the strategic business guidance and legal counsel needed to succeed in this highly regulated industry where the investments are large, the regulations are intricate, and the licensing process can be burdensome.

Our team supports clients of all sizes: start-ups, mid-size companies and multi-state enterprise organizations. From reviewing existing regulatory materials, to business licensing and expansion, to deep dives into their business and strategic vision, we stay involved at every step. And we uniquely understand the nuances critical to success during the licensing process and post-licensing endeavors because we’re actively engaged in the legislative and regulatory processes shaping cannabis laws.

Our services and areas of expertise include:

Cannabis Licensing Applications [+]

We conduct the due diligence and analysis needed to create strategic plans for expanding into new markets through the application and licensing processes. Our successes include submitting the very first application for a medical marijuana license in Arizona; helping clients win cannabis licenses in states with highly competitive merit-based application processes; and preparing comprehensive cannabis licensing applications throughout the U.S.

Expansion of Operations & Multi-State Operations [+]

In this constantly changing industry, we help clients evaluate opportunities in new and expanding markets. We support the ongoing buildout and scaling of our clients’ operations by working with regulators to gain approval for new processes, equipment, and other operational matters. We also help single-state operators transform into multi-state operators by developing and implementing comprehensive expansion plans via strategic joint ventures, M&A, licensing arrangements and other alternative structures.

Emerging Market Expansion [+]

Our approach helps clients identify, research, and enter emerging markets. Critical to success is developing creative ways to gain community support – often under adversarial circumstances – and navigating the political challenges and hurdles of each state.
