Marijuana Law and Policy

Mansour Gavin is a leader in providing legal services to the fast-paced growth industry of legal cannabis in Ohio, the United States, and abroad. We assist clients in navigating the regulatory complexities of the industry, as well as the day-to-day legal services needs of acquiring, starting, operating, and selling a cannabis business.

Mansour Gavin was involved during the infancy of Ohio’s medical marijuana program, representing clients in legislative and public hearings that formed the basis for the rules and regulations of the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program. Our attorneys understand the challenges of complying with the laws and regulations applicable to the cannabis industry and, as always, we strive to understand and support clients to reach their goals and business objectives.

Our clients include marijuana cultivators, processors and dispensaries. We assist our clients in understanding regulatory compliance, applications for licensing, due diligence, federal, state, and local legal issues, while providing general business guidance. Leveraging our other practice areas, we have the capability to assist clients with contract review, environmental compliance, intellectual property, real estate, and labor and employment laws, including workplace training.
