Businesses in the highly regulated medical and adult-use cannabis industries face a gauntlet of federal, state and local laws and regulations that are pertinent to cannabis cultivation, processing and dispensing, and the many business activities that are ancillary to those core legal marijuana business functions. With cannabis legalized in one form or another in every U.S. state where Duane Morris has an office, our attorneys are uniquely situated to assist clients in achieving their business goals in this rapidly growing industry, and have been actively representing clients participating in different sectors of the multi-faceted legal cannabis industry.
Duane Morris attorneys in offices throughout the U.S. and internationally have extensive experience with the wide array of issues attendant to legal cannabis business activities, including licensing for cultivation, processing and dispensing; litigation; banking and finance; raising and deploying capital; protecting intellectual property; real estate development; public company representation and SEC filings; land use and zoning; healthcare and research; taxation; and cross-border transactions. In addition to advising participants in the medical and recreational marijuana industries, Duane Morris attorneys are able to assist clients in other sectors whose businesses intersect with the expanding legal cannabis sector.
