Launching a cannabis business in Massachusetts is just like starting any other business… Or is it?
When doing business in a highly-regulated industry, a rapidly changing legal landscape exists that requires a team of attorneys to collaborate across practice areas. As the legalization of marijuana continues to roll out, Bulkley Richardson understands the unique legal needs of cannabis businesses operating in Massachusetts and has developed a comprehensive practice group to specifically meet the many challenges within the cannabis industry.
The firm assembled a group of cross-disciplinary lawyers to form a cannabis practice group, including Scott Foster (leads both the Business and Emerging Companies groups and co-founder of Valley Venture Mentors), Kathleen Bernardo (leads the Real Estate group) and Mary Jo Kennedy (leads the Employment group).
Our team of seasoned attorneys are experienced in:
- Federal regulations
- Start-up considerations
- Banking and finance
- Protection of trademarks
- Real estate and zoning
- Employment matters from hiring to firing
- Business disputes and other litigation
