We assist cannabis clients of all types and experience across California to navigate the state’s evolving cannabis laws, including advising cultivators, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. We are located in Oakland, but work with clients as far north as Humboldt, the Central Valley to the east, and Santa Barbara and Los Angeles in Southern California. More recently, we have advised clients in the newly-legalized hemp industry.
The laws governing the cannabis and hemp industries are a work in progress, making our sound legal counsel critical. Our expertise in permitting, land use, real estate, corporate transactions and commercial litigation has translated into our on-going work for large, vertically-integrated companies as well as burgeoning entrepreneurs.
Our expertise in cannabis regulatory issues is recognized by legal education providers, where we serve as faculty, and the media, including the San Francisco Chronicle and Business Times, MSNBC and MG Magazine. We frequently publish articles and are asked to present information at industry events.
