The Green Industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the United States, and Colorado has been playing a leading role. Our experience began first in Colorado, but we offer cannabis legal services to clients throughout the United States and Canada. 

The Green Industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the United States, and Colorado has been playing a leading role in advancing cannabis regulation in accordance with guidelines originally outlined in the Cole Memo. Whether or not the Cole Memo remains as official guidance for the cannabis industry, we are committed to insuring that those guidelines preventing criminal activity or expose to minors, and assisting our clients with compliance throughout the process, from initial licensing forward.

Colorado has lead by example and our success has resulted in the enactment of more reasonable cannabis policies throughout much of America. Our experience with regulatory policies in Colorado has informed our nationwide approach and understanding of cannabis law. However, this does not mean that founding and running a cannabis business is something that can be done quickly or easily. State and local agencies tightly regulates the medical and recreational cannabis industries. The application and licensing process is exhaustive and regulatory compliance is essential to the success of any cannabis business.

The Rodman Law Group has guided many companies through the regulatory labyrinth that has sprung up around the cannabis industry. We begin with an in-depth consultation to discuss the client’s goals and to determine if those goals are attainable given the relevant laws and regulations put in place by the MED and the local licensing entity that has jurisdiction over the client’s business. If we determined that the client can legally proceed, we assist them in selecting the proper legal entity for their business. After an entity is incorporated, we focus on helping our clients secure the proper documentation for their applications with the state and the local licensing entities.

Next, we complete the client’s applications and walk them through the application meetings. Upon successful licensure, The Rodman Law Group continues to work with our clients to ensure regulatory compliance. We generally function as “Outside General Counsel” for our clients and handle all their legal, regulatory, and business needs.

During the application process, and extending indefinitely past the date of licensure, our firm also works closely with our clients on the non-regulatory facets of their businesses. We draft real estate lease and purchase agreements, shareholder agreements, supply and distribution contracts, sales agreements, employee agreements, operating procedures, and legal demand letters.

We ensure that our client’s precious Intellectual Property is protected using non-disclosure agreements, trade secret law and, if relevant, both copyright and trademark enforcement. The Rodman Law Group also ensures that our clients remain in compliance with relevant securities laws as they raise the capital their business needs, thereby avoiding costly entanglements with the SEC.
