Cannabis Retail Law

Toronto Business Lawyers Experienced in Cannabis Retail Law & Licensing

The legalization of recreational cannabis across Canada in 2018 opened a new market for both the retail, manufacturing and agricultural industries. As a result, a proliferation of new upstarts emerged looking to capitalize on these opportunities. While the cannabis market can be rewarding financially, the regulatory schemes with respect to cannabis growth, licensing and distribution are complex and difficult to navigate. Securing a business lawyer with in-depth knowledge of the various regulations is essential to any cannabis venture.

The lawyers at GLG LLP work with several cannabis producers, distributers, retailers and related ventures. Their knowledge of the industry has led to them being appointed as de facto in-house counsel for a number of cannabis-related businesses. They provide a combination of business and regulatory experience specific to the cannabis industry that serves their clients in both the start-up phase and day-to-day operations of their companies. They simplify their clients’   operations by keeping them informed of their obligations in order to ensure compliance with all relevant laws.

GLG LLP will assist cannabis companies with every step of their operation, including:

  • Completion & submission of retail licence applications
  • Drafting & review of contracts and corporate agreements
  • Securing commercial space for purchase or lease
  • Financing matters
  • Proactively keeping clients informed of any compliance, regulatory or legal developments in the industry
