At Kilpatrick, we understand the dynamics and opportunities of the cannabis industry and will help you navigate the complexities of state laws and the unique business challenges they bring.

Like you, we recognize the unprecedented opportunities for businesses. We also understand the challenges stemming from the interplay between federal and state laws, which add complexity to your operations, financing, and growth plans. We are committed to understanding your business inside and out, to ensure your business is not only compliant, but also poised for sustainable growth.

We assist clients with every facet of their business needs from license application or acquisition, business formation, brand expansion, intellectual property protection, to exit. Our attorneys connect you to local partners and access to capital, offering counsel on both debt and equity financing so you can grow your business. We address the industry challenges in real estate acquisitions and leasing, labor and employment issues, and help navigate the federal (280E) and state taxation intricacies.
