A strong start makes all the difference for a lasting legacy.
Harris Bricken’s cannabis attorneys understand every step of the state licensing and registration process you’re required to navigate in order to establish a strong foundation for your business. Why? Because we’ve been advising clients across the nation through the permitting and licensing process since the inception of the regulated cannabis market.
States across the country are embracing stringent (and often inconsistent) licensing regimes for marijuana entrepreneurs. Each state’s licensing process is vastly different, and each is demanding and capital-intensive. To obtain a state or local license or permit, new marijuana businesses face a long, labor-intensive process fraught with changing laws and regulations, multiple state and local governmental bodies, and an ongoing list of state regulations and standards. These legal and regulatory issues are complex and can be pitfalls for unwary cannabis companies.
Harris Bricken has built a national reputation for making the state licensing process as efficient and successful as possible. We have helped hundreds of clients in leading cannabis markets across the country obtain the operational licenses, permits, and registrations they need, and we are constantly adapting and honing our licensing services to get the job done right for our clients. Each new state that legalizes cannabis brings about new and highly specific regulations, but because of our knowledge and experience, we are armed and ready with all the right questions to ask.
Our state and local licensing and permitting services include:
- Business plan development
- Guidance regarding compliance with state regulations and the interplay between governing state agencies
- Education regarding ongoing compliance with applicable regulations
- Development of required manuals and handbooks to meet state regulations
- Financial review to ensure compliance with state regulations
- Compilation of license and registration applications
- License application assistance for cultivators, manufacturers, and retailers
Harris Bricken’s cannabis attorneys also assist clients in highly competitive local permitting markets, and have helped clients obtain extremely sought after permits in highly competitive local jurisdictions.
