The New York application window for Cannabis cultivators, processors, distributors, dispensaries, and microbusinesses was recently extended to December 18, 2023, so it’s not too late to apply. Prince Lobel Tye LLP can help you do so, just as it has helped nineteen of its Cannabis dispensary clients complete licensing application filings for land-secured, adult-use retail dispensaries.
Applicants that have secured real estate for indoor cultivation, processing and distribution facilities may continue to submit applications through December 18th, with more application windows slated to open for other license types (for example, delivery and cooperatives) in the coming months. However, a Cannabis applicant doesn’t need to have real estate secured if it is planning to open a dispensary or microbusiness. A provisional license retail dispensary or microbusiness application can be submitted at any time during this extended open application window.
Our firm’s commitment to excellence and comprehensive legal strategies have proven instrumental in navigating the complex landscape of the New York Cannabis application window. Our specialization in Cannabis regulations spans national, state, and local levels, providing crucial insights into the evolving legal landscape. This knowledge has been paramount in crafting applications that exceed the stringent criteria for applications set by the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) and the Cannabis Control Board (CCB).
Through meticulous analysis of local zoning laws, community relations, and compliance requirements, our team has developed tailored plans that optimize success for our clients in applying for these coveted licenses. Our attorneys have been able to provide valuable legal support throughout the entire process, from the initial intake to on-the-ground application support. This includes advising on land-use matters, negotiating agreements, and addressing any legal challenges that may arise during the application process.
At Prince Lobel Tye LLP, our client-centric approach involves understanding the unique goals and priorities of each client, allowing us to tailor legal strategies that align with their business objectives and goals. We maintain open communication to ensure our clients are informed and confident at every step of the way.
Prince Lobel Tye LLP is proud to work with both Social and Economic Equity (SEE) applicants and Registered Organizations (ROs). Our team is ready and available to assist any and all clients, ensuring they can navigate the application process successfully. We look forward to continuing to guide your success in the Cannabis industry and are available to address any questions or concerns you may have.
