The Oregon Cannabis Law Group is lawyers Andrew C. DeWeese, Esq. and Kevin J. Jacoby, Esq., and paralegal Jennifer Berndt, JD. We are knowledgeable cannabis industry professionals who provide our clients with business-oriented, effective problem solving, and are committed to following the highest standards of legal ethics and professionalism.
We help clients in all sectors of the legal cannabis industry, in all areas of Oregon and beyond. We keep abreast of the constantly changing laws, rules, and regulations, and we respond to our clients’ questions in a timely and knowledgable manner. We assist clients in applying for recreational cannabis licenses, including OLCC production (growing), processor, wholesale, retailer, research certificate, and laboratory licenses, as well as medical dispensary and processor licenses. We assist in all aspects of the process, from vetting land and preparing Land Use Compatibility Statements for submission to local authorities, to operating and security plan compliance, to license application submission, to preparing for inspection, liaising with inspectors, and, if need be, contesting license denials via administrative proceedings. Our clients benefit from our experience in forming corporations and limited liability companies with fair, clear corporate documents and governance procedures.
Whether your business is having compliance issues with a state agency, trouble with a competitor, a breach of contract by a SUPPLIER, or being sued by a disgruntled employee, our trial lawyers provide experience-driven strategic advice to achieve the best possible result. We also have extensive experience handling high-profile, complex and factually-intensive partnership, limited liability company membership and close corporation disputes, as well as prosecuting and defending business torts such as fraud, embezzlement, breach of fiduciary duty, and defamation.
