Negotiating leases and tenancy requirements can be difficult for any business, but it can present additional challenges for those operating in the cannabis industry. Green Light Law Group has extensive experience representing both landlords and tenants through lease negotiations and disputes across a variety of industries.
In the cannabis industry, it is critical that commercial leases are specifically tailored to ensure that your business is adequately protected. Attorneys at the Green Light Law Group are prepared to represent both cannabis businesses and landowners selling, renting, or leasing their land to those businesses through sophisticated lease and sale agreements.
Our attorneys have experience in commercial real estate investment from both legal and business perspectives and are equipped to guide your real estate transactions. Cannabis business owners face additional challenges when trying to initiate operations on a new site. To sidestep these challenges, we’re able to support buyers by evaluating titles for liens and other encumbrances when buying a farm, dispensary, or processing facility, and to evaluate any legal challenges that might prevent clients from operating a cannabis business. We can also conduct due diligence review on properties, including ensuring environmental clearances. For both buyers and sellers, we can structure financing agreements that involve complex negotiations between multiple parties and narrowly tailor agreements to meet industry requirements and protect our clients’ interests.
Because tenants who run cannabis businesses are often subject to greater scrutiny than a traditional business might face, Green Light Law is also prepared to support clients fighting evictions. The laws governing commercial evictions are complicated, and it essential to have an experienced attorney to navigate the court system. Our attorneys strive to listen to each client’s goals in resolving the dispute and work hard to achieve that result whether it is through a quick resolution or through the judicial system.
