How to Hire a Cannabis Lawyer
It’s a good day when you’re hiring a lawyer to help you start a legal cannabis business and not to get you off the hook. Cannabis criminal justice reform has a long way to go, but we’re getting there.
In the meantime, hiring a cannabis lawyer ensures your business is legally compliant.
Why is it important to find a qualified cannabis lawyer?
Multi-state operators have to navigate different cannabis laws in different states. Submitting a compliant business license application is infamously challenging. Cannabis businesses have to abide by certain zoning, formation, and operation laws. Legislation often changes, even in states with established cannabis industries. Because the industry that you’re operating in is so volatile, the right lawyer is an invaluable asset to your cannabis company.
What to look for in a cannabis lawyer:
Your lawyer should have verifiable, personal experience in the industry or work for a firm who does.
Here are some questions to ask:
- How long have you (or your firm) been working alongside cannabis businesses?
- Does your firm have experience working with companies like me (startups, multi-state operators, vertically-integrated license holders, dispensaries, etc.)?
- Do you work with cannabis clients in multiple states/countries? What markets are you familiar with?
- Are you prepared to adapt to regulatory changes?
- How do you ensure you’re informed about rules and regulations changing, compliance and new legislation?
