Tannenbaum Helpern offers high quality, highly tailored services required by its clients involved in the emerging, closely regulated medical and adult-use (or recreational-use) cannabis industry. Our cannabis-related clients include major investors in medical marijuana growers and retailers in the Northeastern United States, U.S. and non-U.S. cannabis-focused private investment funds catering to U.S. investors, and institutional investors with interests in cannabis companies in the U.S. and Canada. For these clients, the Firm provides a wide range of legal services including general corporate, venture capital, private equity, mergers & acquisitions, investment management, intellectual property, business reorganizations and creditors’ rights, general and specialized taxation, employment, litigation, cybersecurity and data privacy, in addition to advice relating to compliance with United States state laws and regulations governing cannabis. We also advise our clients on the inconsistencies between many state laws and federal law governing cannabis.

*The distribution and sale of marijuana, as well as its use and possession, remain criminalized under federal law. We do not intend any of our legal advice to provide assistance in the violation of federal law.
