Complying with the complex laws and regulations governing the cannabis industry is a basic pre-requisite for any business looking to operate in this space.
For many, the tremendous medical, social and economic potential of this emerging industry more than justifies the extra effort and outlay required to establish a cannabis operation. In this regard, the cannabis marketplace poses both unique challenges and unsurpassed opportunities.
Cannabis is a regulated substance and the laws governing industry businesses are complex. As a result, the ability for any business to produce, manufacture, distribute, or sell cannabis-related products can only be done in strict adherence to voluminous state and local regulations.

Intellectual Property and Branding Services
Non-tangible business assets, such as brand names, logos, inventions, messaging, literary and artistic works, trade secrets, and recipes, are often just as valuable—if not more valuable—than tangible ones. Protecting these assets from misappropriation is crucial to the long-term success of every cannabis business.
In today’s connected, rapidly-changing environment, cannabis companies face the challenge of developing their brands and protecting intellectual property while coping with tight regulation and continued federal cannabis prohibition.
Garrett Law Group possesses a robust intellectual property practice, with the expertise to help cannabis companies understand and secure their trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and other intangible rights. And if a dispute arises over those rights, our intrepid IP attorneys are proven litigators who aggressively go to bat for our clients.
Garrett Law Group offers strategic services and counseling on branding, licensing, trademark and copyright prosecution, trade secret protection, and other IP issues. If you seek help securing a trademark registration and developing a brand, or if you need to defend your intellectual property rights against infringement, our team will advise as to the best strategies for your business while remaining cognizant of your overarching goals and fiscal health.
Land Use and Zoning
Our attorneys provide in-depth legal counsel to operators in every sector of the cannabis industry, from cultivators and manufacturers to transporters, distributors, testing labs, and retailers. We are experienced in the complex land-use and zoning considerations involved in ensuring that cannabis operators have permittable sites for their facilities.
Garrett Law Group’s legal team is the ideal legal partner for businesses planning to lease or buy property for cannabis-related purposes. Our lawyers assist their clients with a full array of land-use and zoning matters, from the acquisition, landlord relations, zoning disputes, and boundary challenges to negotiation, review, and drafting of commercial leases and real property purchase and sale agreements. We regularly guide cannabis industry operators through the maze of zoning laws while maintaining a steady focus on their overarching business needs and goals.
Garrett Law Group has successfully represented businesses in a wide variety of issues, from general business disputes to high-risk litigation matters unique to the cannabis industry. Our litigating attorneys are seasoned, forward-thinking problem solvers with a deep knowledge of the industry-specific needs and challenges our clients face.
Because lawsuits are costly affairs that can interfere with daily operations and even threaten a company’s existence, we seek to limit each client’s exposure by proactively identifying and mitigating potential liabilities. In this regard, among the most valuable services our litigation team provides is the implementation of preemptive legal strategies, including careful review of contracts and other documents, to help insulate our clients from commercial disputes.
When litigation arises, however, our team’s expertise, and the ability to see each case in the context of the larger picture, make us an ideal ally for our clients. We develop long-term litigation strategies that are sensitive to your business goals and bottom-line. Where viable, we will pursue alternative dispute resolution, such as arbitration, mediation, or settlement.
No matter the nature of your dispute, our lawyers will help you understand your legal options and work closely with you to develop a strategy that advances your position and is the best fit for your business.
