White Plains, New York Cannabis Law

Cannabis Law Industry


The Prince Lobel White Plains, New York office is pleased to offer cannabis law advice after almost a decade of representing legal cannabis businesses in Massachusetts. The first legal cannabis business to open in Boston was represented by Prince Lobel, as well as the first business to change from a non-profit entity, and the first marijuana dispensary to be licensed for Adult Use. Our cannabis attorneys were the first to file a change of control application with the Cannabis Control Commission, and represented the purchasers in the two largest legal cannabis transactions in Massachusetts in 2019.

With New York State projected to become the largest legal cannabis market in the country, our White Plains, New York office added experts of cannabis law in July 2022:  James K. Landau, Douglas S. Trokie and David C. Holland.  In September 2022, we welcomed prominent New York cannabis attorney Andrew Schriever.  With this outstanding group, our White Plains, New York attorneys can provide cannabis law counseling and the ability to leverage the firm’s vast experience alongside the trio’s knowledge of local, state, and federal laws and years of experience in litigation, zoning, and corporate law.

Our cannabis clients include existing and prospective marijuana dispensaries, cultivators, manufacturers, management companies, retailers, property owners, and investors. Our New York cannabis attorneys provide sophisticated strategic advice and representation to these clients in connection with a wide variety of matters, such as negotiating the complex agreement to transfer ownership and control to national or international investors or buyers; navigating the state licensing process and the local municipal entitlement process for the siting of marijuana cultivation, cannabis production and dispensing facilities (including obtaining letters of support or non-opposition, zoning approvals, and other permits); structuring banking relationships; developing and implementing tax strategies; forming, structuring and maintaining the sometimes multiple entities that best serves a New York cannabis business; negotiating mezzanine funding agreements, preparing private placement memoranda and assisting with other fundraising efforts; and negotiating the complex lease agreements and purchase and sale agreements for commercial real estate matters in this specialized legal cannabis industry.
