What a Cannabis Lawyer Does for Clients Nationwide

It’s important to understand that a cannabis lawyer is, first and foremost, a business attorney. They are to have extensive familiarity with all the legal and regulatory issues that are involved in running, buying, selling, or merging an enterprise. That means attentive due diligence to contracts and other documents. It means good negotiating skills and, if necessary, the ability to litigate effectively. It means knowledge of licensing, relevant environmental and labor laws, and much more. The foundation of a successful cannabis attorney is simply being a good business lawyer, regardless of whether the client’s product is widgets or weed.

Common Issues in Cannabis Law

Having said all that is above, the new and still somewhat controversial status of cannabis with the general public and political bodies, mean that there are unique challenges faced by the cannabis industry that a lawyer must be prepared to address. Challenges like these…

  • More intensive regulation: Not only are the regulations often more intensive than a typical business, but the political climate in different regions can vary. In some areas, regulators will keep an even more careful eye on the cannabis industry. Missteps by a company are then more likely to be noticed and the consequences are more likely to be serious. The cannabis lawyer must be right on top of all compliance matters. 
  • The myriad of business relationships: While having a wide range of business relationships—from manufacturing to distribution to marketing isn’t necessarily unique to cannabis, the regulatory and licensing intensity just noted has ripple effects here. A business must be sure their vendors are also in compliance. Finding out is the cannabis attorney’s job. 
  • The startup phase: The company that’s placed on a firm legal foundation usually has the best chance of success. The cannabis lawyer is important in making that happen, from involvement in the financing to copyrights and trademarks to overseeing the packaging and labeling of the product. 

A Steady Hand at the Wheel

The cannabis industry is very much in its embryonic phase and the legal and financial waters can often be choppy. A business can benefit from having an experienced and steady hand at the wheel in times like these. 

That’s where Singh Law Firm comes in. Our 45-plus years of combined legal experience and are only augmented by our additional experience in business itself. Clients that come to us can count on holistic advice that understands their issues from all angles—the legal and the financial.
