Experienced in cannabis law 

As the founder and former Chairperson of the Cannabis Law Section of the New Mexico State Bar, Carlos Martinez offers a wealth of experience in cannabis law to aspiring business owners.

Being a life-long advocate of cannabis legalization and having participated on numerous boards of directors, as well as serving on the Cannabis Chamber of Commerce’s legislative task committee, Cannabis Law Solutions’ team is well-positioned to advise your business.

Having tracked cannabis legalization throughout the nation, Cannabis Law Solutions can help provide a comprehensive plan to help your business get established in the industry, or help existing businesses expand their operations.

Cannabis law can be complex and the regulatory landscape is constantly changing. Business owners in the sector face hurdles that most other types of businesses simply don’t face. Licensing regulations are only the first challenge.

Cannabis business owners must overcome issues such as zoning laws, local permit requirements, production limits and advertising/branding restrictions. Failure to comply can lead to license suspension or even harsh criminal penalties.

We have over a decade’s experience in preparing businesses for this, helping business owners incorporate and navigate the complex license application process. From small microbusinesses to larger enterprises, we have helped cannabis retail, cultivation, processing, manufacturing, distributing and testing operations become established.

We have also represented clients in civil lawsuits, administrative hearings and appeals in multiple states.

Due to our constant due diligence in staying up-to-date with national cannabis laws, we can help protect and minimize your risk and exposure at all stages of the business life cycle.

How will our cannabis services help you?

Cannabis business entity formation

Whether you are looking to form a limited liability company (LLC) or a corporation, our experienced business lawyers can discuss the pros and cons of both and help you incorporate your business with the optimal structure to achieve your goals.

Cannabis business licenses

If you want to run a cannabis business, you will need a valid business license issued by your state authority as well as local permits. Eligibility criteria are likely to be stringent and we can help you navigate the often-complex license application process.

Cannabis corporate documentation

Whether you need to prepare for a license application, transfer of business ownership, change of corporate structure, transfer business location, or another business process, we can help you identify and draft the documentation you need to operate legally in your state.

Cannabis administrative law

State authorities watch licensed and unlicensed cannabis businesses closely. If you violate regulations, you could face an administrative penalty. Our attorneys can provide representation or help you prepare for an administrative hearing, settlement conference or appeal.

Cannabis disputes and litigation

Whether you have a dispute with another business, a legal issue with one of your partners or a licensing or administrative issue, you may need legal assistance to help resolve it. We are adept at alternative dispute resolution methods as well as civil litigation.

Regulatory compliance

As the cannabis industry emerges in states around the U.S., it is more heavily regulated than most other industries. We can help your business navigate the red tape and plan to stay on the right side of the regulatory authorities in whichever state you are based.
