Cannabis Disputes and Litigation Attorneys

If you are involved in a dispute involving your cannabis business, you don’t just need an attorney—you need a cannabis industry attorney.

Regardless of the state in which you operate, the cannabis industry has a set of unique and complex regulations, rules and requirements that are not well understood unless you are experienced in dealing with cannabis law.

Whether your cannabis business license is under threat, you are facing a crippling administrative fine, or you are in dispute with a competitor or partner, you have legal rights and can protect your business interests with the right help.

To win legal battles within the cannabis industry, you need to be able to call on specific expertise from attorneys with a profound understanding of the relevant laws, as well as experience in handling cannabis-specific litigation, mediation, arbitration, and administrative disputes.

The cannabis litigation attorneys at Cannabis Law Solutions are ready to vigorously defend your interests either in or out of the courtroom.

Experienced cannabis litigation lawyers

A maze of federal, state and local laws governs the cannabis industry across the U.S.

If you are the subject of a government investigation, licensing issue, or you have a dispute with another business or one of your partners or investors, your next move is crucial.

Regardless of the sector of the industry in which you operate or where you are based, the consequences of losing a legal dispute can be costly. The future of your cannabis business could even be at stake.

Our cannabis disputes and litigation attorneys defend the rights of both public and private cannabis companies and industry investors in litigation proceedings around the U.S.

Our cannabis litigation services

Cannabis Law Solutions assists not only with litigation but with cannabis-specific mediation and arbitration services that help prevent litigation.

In addition to licensing and administrative disputes and appeals, we provide other litigation services for cannabis businesses, such as:

Founder and partnership disputes

It is not uncommon for founders, partners and shareholders in any business to experience disagreements.

For most cannabis businesses, the stakes are very high, so when owners, founders and partners in the business do not see eye to eye, the problem can escalate. A full-blown dispute can easily arise.

From our experience, alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation or arbitration, can often be applied to help resolve these disputes. However, in the most serious cases, litigation is necessary and you need to be ready for this eventuality. Your investment could be at risk if the dispute is not suitably resolved.

We can assist with:

  • The removal of a partner
  • Recovery of assets after a buyout
  • Dissolution of a failed partnership
  • Rescinding a partnership agreement

Investor protection and recovery

Investors have flocked to the cannabis industry in many states, keen to take advantage of the many lucrative opportunities it presents.

However, for every success story, there is a case where mismanagement or misconduct caused a cannabis business to fail or experience serious losses.

In such circumstances, litigation may be an option for lenders or investors to recover losses, notably if wrongdoing from management can be proven. We will manage the litigation process from start to finish so that you can recover the bulk of your losses.

Traditional business disputes 

Any business can face disputes internally or with customers, suppliers or competitors. It is part of the reality of doing business.

In the cannabis industry, where the laws and regulations are still being penned in many cases (and legal precedents are less developed than in other industries), disputes are common.

The disputes handled by our attorneys often relate to traditional business disputes such as:

  • IP and Trade secret disputes
  • Unfair competition
  • Breach of trademark disputes
  • Breach of contract disputes
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Employment disputes
  • Fraud
  • Land use and entitlement disputes
  • Real property and lease disputes
  • Rescission of an agreement

Remember, for most businesses in the cannabis industry. traditional types of disputes may involve a “twist” to how things normally proceed for conventional businesses.

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.
