Business Formation & Transactions

Early decisions about the legal structure of a cannabis business can have a lasting impact on its owners. Startups and established entrepreneurs can benefit when they build on a solid legal footing. Green Light Law Group will help cannabis business owners assess the choices – such as that between registering as an LLC or corporation – that will impact their individual tax and legal liabilities. We are also prepared to help groups of partners value their contributions when deciding how to allocate ownership interests in their new cannabis business.

Strong, negotiated relationships with key suppliers, vendors, and customers will help decrease uncertainty and can dramatically improve your business’s ability to flourish in these emerging industries. Our attorneys collectively have decades of experience negotiating and drafting contracts for private and public entities of varying sophistication and complexity.

In an industry which is seeing larger and larger deals, good guidance is a crucial tool for success. Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) play a key role in the growth of any business, and our attorneys have represented target companies and acquiring companies in cannabis-related M&A transactions reaching into the billions of dollars.

We evaluate acquisition structures to ensure your interests are protected and can help you protect yourself from liabilities or tax obligations. We can help plan and close joint ventures with attention to regulatory and licensing compliance. Green Light Law Group attorneys are available to walk you through these transactions so that your business is able to continue without interruption.
