The development of a new business is complex. For a business in the emerging cannabis industry, with its constantly evolving and sometimes conflicting laws and regulations, it can seem overwhelming.
Whether you are in the production, distribution or retail aspects of the industry, Farris has the corporate and commercial experience to advise on all aspects of your new or established enterprise and the regulatory knowledge to make sure your business is positioned to advance and thrive.
The Canadian regulatory environment for cannabis not only includes federal legislation, but provincial and sometimes municipal regulations. Farris can assist in navigating these ever-changing rules and produce the documentation to ensure compliance.
Our lawyers have experience in the highly-regulated agribusiness sector, applying that full-cycle knowledge to all areas of the cannabis industry. We can assist with the purchase of real estate, from farmland to warehouses to retail space, or the acquisition of an already established business. We can advise on all areas of business from investor and partnership agreements to tax strategies to employment agreements and trademarking. National legalization has made Canada attractive to international investors—Farris can help your business take advantage of this interest through a public offering or help to position your business for new opportunities in other established or emerging markets.
