Our talented, eminently knowledgeable, and dedicated attorneys help our clients start, manage, and protect their businesses. This includes finding the perfect location in Michigan to site a medical marihuana business, educating and influencing municipalities about enacting medical marijuana ordinances, securing municipal permits and state licenses, and advancing the interests of Michigan’s canna-biz community both locally and at the state level.

We offer our popular, low-cost Canna-Biz Master Class, a quarterly educational seminar and industry networking event. These comprehensive events held throughout Michigan provide timely and important reports on all of Michigan’s rapidly developing marijuana and hemp laws, spotlight presentations by the top regulators and professionals serving the industry, and provide focused industry networking. Please contact us to reserve your space at our next Canna-Biz Master Class.


Why you can’t wait to protect your brand and logo with a trademark registration.

Trademarks help businesses protect their products and distinguish them from competitors. With a recognizable trademark, customers know which business is supplying the products they purchase and use.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs began accepting Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing applications December 2018. Soon, hundreds of new medical marihuana businesses will begin competing with one another in this new licensed industry. No longer limited to “the one caregiver/five patient” model, these new businesses will market their products to qualifying patients throughout the state. It is never too early to start building a strong brand.

Call us today to schedule a trademark consultation. We can help you protect your budding business.
