There is no other industry garnering as much excitement as the legal cannabis industry. Frantz Ward attorneys operate at the forefront of the cannabis space and are uniquely situated to advise clients on every aspect of operating a legal cannabis business, including federal, state, and local regulations, and the current conflict between state and federal law. In addition, our attorneys counsel employers, physicians, governments, and others on the impact of Ohio's medical marijuana law and cannabis policy generally.
Frantz Ward was one of the first Ohio law firms to dedicate a practice specifically to cannabis law and policy. For years, our attorneys have built relationships with policy makers and industry stakeholders, both at the state and federal level. We leverage those relationships to assist our clients in navigating the cannabis industry’s complicated legal landscape.
Choosing the right advocate in the cannabis industry is one of the most important choices a company can make. To that end, we help our clients with license procurement, corporate formation, mergers and acquisitions, and other corporate transactions. We also help clients acquire or lease real estate and we work with local governments to address local zoning and land use regulations. When litigation is unavoidable, we represent our clients in business disputes and other cannabis-related litigation.
