The number one challenge for businesses in the cannabis industry is legal compliance.

No trade is more challenging than cannabis. The new and developing economy of cannabis presents legal issues in almost every area imaginable; regulatory, employment, tax and 280E compliance, banking, licensing and permitting, commercial litigation, employment, real estate, construction, business formation, mergers and acquisitions, franchise, and even constitutional law. That’s why this unique sector requires dedicated lawyers with a broad range of experience to navigate through these evolving issues.

No one has broader experience than Seigfreid Bingham.

Our lawyers have years of combined experience in all the practice areas related to the cannabis industry. Our services are tailored to assist producers, retailers, investors, entrepreneurs, cultivators, testing labs, and distributors with all areas involving medical marijuana, CBD, and hemp products, as well as suppliers, bankers, employers, and stakeholders in non-cannabis related businesses and products. As a member of the Missouri Medical Cannabis Trade Association, we pride ourselves in staying on top of industry knowledge, laws, and standards. We understand your business and how to guide you through changes that arise in the expanding cannabis sector, including the impact on employers outside of the cannabis industry. Your business will be affected in more ways than you think; do not find yourself in a situation your lawyer does not fully understand.
