Cultiva Law

We provided strategic legal counsel that contributed to the legalization of medical cannabis and protections for those who provide and use it. We were active participants in developing the policies and legal structures that created the thriving adult-use cannabis markets across the country. As advocates for the industry and culture of cannabis, we understand why our clients choose the bigger risks and less certain rewards of the cannabis industry.

Because we were among the architects of cannabis law, we have the insights and professional depth to make the risks much more manageable and the rewards far more likely. Our clients, former and current, will attest to our comprehensive knowledge of cannabis law and our sincere commitment to their success and the success of this industry we are building together. All entrepreneurs launch businesses. Our clients are entrepreneurs determined to help launch an entirely new industry. We understand this well.

Our marijuana lawyers are experienced, connected, and influential in the cannabis industry. We not only produce unparalleled professional results for clients, but our strategic legal counsel also lead the way in helping develop new laws and policies applicable to marijuana businesses. We are well known in the legal community, connecting with influential industry leaders through a variety of professional associations and teaching Continuing Legal Education seminars educating other attorneys about the important nuances in practicing in this unique and burgeoning marijuana industry.
