Cannabis and Hemp

We offer a one-stop-shop of legal services related to cannabis and hemp, from starting a business to putting a product on the market. As a founding member of the Virginia Cannabis Industry Association, we are well-equipped to help our clients navigate the complex and evolving state and federal regulations.

Virginia is on the precipice of rapid growth in the cannabis and hemp industry. Whether you are directly involved in the industry as a cultivator, manufacturer, distributor, or laboratory – or indirectly as a physician, investor, or lender – we can help.

Corporate formation

We can help you identify the business entity that will provide you needed flexibility while ensuring that you and your investors are protected.

General business matters

Cannabis and hemp businesses face many of the same legal issues as other businesses. We can advise you on commercial litigation issues, contracts, intellectual property, and employment issues.


Our attorneys can help you navigate the regulatory landscape, whether you are a physician seeking advice on your ability to recommend cannabis and maintain your DEA license, or a cannabis entrepreneur looking to obtain the necessary licenses.

Products liability

Given our firm’s long tradition of defending product liability claims, our attorneys are uniquely situated to handle any claims that arise from the sale or distribution of your products, particularly those involving vaping and edibles.

Real estate

We can help you identify land, negotiate purchase and sale agreements, conduct due diligence, secure financing and close on your real property.
