Jacobs PC Legal Practitioners in Cannabis

Jacobs P.C. has extensive experience in the medical and adult-use cannabis industry, and many of our attorneys have been advising in this area since cannabis was first legalized and regulated in the State of New York and other states across the U.S. We also advise clients regarding industrial hemp and cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoid products, as well as companies interested in providing supporting services to cannabis companies.  We advise cannabis companies on the risks inherent in the industry and general commercial risks and help them create and implement business strategies and compliance practices to mitigate the risks.  

Our attorneys think creatively and help you confidently take advantage of the opportunities in this new industry of promise, providing unique insight and experience to assist cannabis-related businesses.

In addition, we help entrepreneurs, investment funds, and new business owners successfully launch their cannabis businesses and navigate evolving regulations as well as the license application process before the New York Office of Cannabis Management and other similar offices.
