We Help Clients Navigate This New and Rapidly Changing Industry
As more states legalize medical and recreational cannabis, companies in the cannabis industry face many regulations that require the assistance of experienced attorneys. Our Cannabis Practice Group focuses on advancing and protecting the interests of these cannabis businesses.
Each business in this industry is different. Whether it’s a start-up applying for a license to open a medical cannabis dispensary or a large cannabis operation in other states looking to open a business in the Midwest, HeplerBroom assists our clients in navigating state regulations.
We Use a Client-Centered Approach
Our team’s first step is to gain a thorough understanding of each client’s situation. Next, we help the client develop goals for resolving any issues it faces. Finally, we apply our experience, skill, and creativity to help the client reach those goals.
We Handle a Broad Array of Legal Needs
Our Cannabis Practice Group advises and assists clients in a wide range of legal issues, including:
We guide each client in setting up the appropriate legal business entity to fit its specific needs.
We also guide each client in preparing and submitting all forms of cannabis business licensing and permit applications.
The business attorneys in our Cannabis Practice Group are experienced in navigating due diligence, negotiating business agreements, drafting legal and employment contracts, and working with vendors, financial institutions, real estate companies, insurance companies, and other interested businesses.
Zoning and local lobbying
HeplerBroom will lobby for and represent clients’ interests to state officials and the administrative agencies that regulate the cannabis industry. We also represent clients’ interests at town hall meetings, in local zoning hearings, and with municipalities in our clients’ current or potential business locations.
HeplerBroom uses its employment law expertise to protect our clients’ interests related to employment liability, employee training, handbook preparation, and employee benefits.
We help our clients comply with state-required yearly or reoccurring audits.
While no business wants to be involved in litigation, HeplerBroom’s attorneys are experienced litigators who have the expertise to litigate for our cannabis business clients in a wide range of areas, including product liability, employment, and commercial/business disputes.
