As the legalization of cannabis has spurred the growth of cannabis-related businesses, a new and quickly evolving legal and regulatory landscape has emerged.

Barton LLP’s Cannabis Law team is equipped to advise businesses at several points of the cannabis supply chain, from cultivators, extractors, and processors to retailers, distributors, and dispensaries. Our attorneys can provide guidance regarding state and federal regulation and compliance laws, as well as business considerations such as proper licensing, labeling and marketing concerns, tax issues, labor and employment, cybersecurity, and commercial litigation.

For emerging companies in the cannabis space, our team can assist with corporate formation and financing, the procurement of intellectual property rights and protections, and real estate and other contractual negotiations. We also represent vendors adjacent to the cannabis industry, as well as those looking to invest in cannabis-related businesses.

Barton LLP also recognizes that the growth of the cannabis industry is both a national and international phenomenon. Our clients require timely advice at the local, state, and federal level throughout the United States as well as internationally. Our firm can help provide this through our active membership in the International Society of Primerus Law Firms, an international network of top-rated, independent law firms. Through Primerus, Barton partners with nearly 200 law firms in more than 40 countries, including in every state in the U.S., as well as in Canada and Mexico. This partnership allows us to get the answers and advice that our clients need to smoothly conduct their cannabis-related businesses no matter what the geographic realities and locations are for them and their businesses.
