About
Negotiated and structured multi-million-dollar mergers between cannabis businesses.

Advised national brands and publically listed companies on general corporate and commercial contract matters.

Advised cannabis multi-state operator during reverse triangle merger to be listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange.

Having worked on over $3 Billion worth of cannabis-related transactions and been a leading cannabis regulatory counsel at one of the top Am Law 100 law firms, I seek to provide greater access to that expertise. Over the years, I have worked with companies of all sizes; from start-ups to publically traded companies.
