About Akerman LLP

As the number of states legalizing cannabis for medical and adult use increases, there is growing disparity between federal and state laws concerning controlled substances. Businesses involved in the legal cultivation, processing, and distribution of cannabis, as well as those providing ancillary services, face an array of legal issues, including banking, regulatory compliance, branding and IP, federal taxation, corporate transactions and dispute resolution.

Members of Akerman's Cannabis Practice understand the complex legal and business issues impacting companies operating in this sector and we have the depth of experience and national reach necessary to help clients meet their business objectives. Our team monitors notable industry trends and legislative developments to provide timely guidance to clients seeking to navigate the maze of often-conflicting federal, state, and local laws and regulations governing cannabis.
