Cannabis & CBD

Cannabis and CBD Industrial Hemp businesses need attorneys who understand the unique regulatory, legal, and policy challenges of their respective industries — while also having a solid background in corporate transactional work.  ADLI’s cannabis practice (ADLI Cannabis) is designed to meet all the transactional needs that cannabis and hemp companies may have.  Whether it is start-up formation, or discussing and planning thru the growth and life-cycle of a business (i.e., contracts, real estate, IP, licensing, tax, security, and mergers and acquisitions), ADLI Cannabis has you covered.

 

ADLI’s cannabis attorneys have extensive experience working with cannabis and hemp clients from all sides of the industry, both within and outside of California. Whether it’s investors, licensees, or ancillary businesses that connect to the industry and need regulatory and legal guidance, our cannabis attorneys are ready to help your business succeed.

 

ADLI’s cannabis practice in California dates back to the Prop 215 era where we assisted clients in the formation of business entities and collectives while ensuring that all legally necessary compliance documents were in place. As the licensing and regulatory framework has shifted and evolved, our cannabis attorneys have provided expert advice at every step. Whether forming the proper business entities needed to protect your assets, obtaining the required licenses and permits, or guiding your business through mergers and acquisitions, ADLI Cannabis is ready to grow with you and your company.

 

ADLI has expertise in all aspects of contract law, including drafting, negotiations, reviewing licensing agreements, real estate leases, purchase agreements, IP agreements, and transfer of ownership interests.  We are also proficient with corporate governance and can assist our clients with all aspects of corporate compliance.

 

While our firm is based in California, we are also familiar with the cannabis and hemp legal landscape in other states and regions, and have worked on agreements, contracts, and licenses in a variety of jurisdictions.

 

ADLI can assist with all your business transactional needs in the cannabis and hemp industries while ensuring that you are compliant, protected, and set up to have the best chance at success.
