Producers and sellers of alcoholic beverages are subject to many unique regulations. The nature of beer, wine, and spirits carries special liability considerations for business owners. Navigate has experience with alcohol licensing, business formation, lease negotiations, contract drafting, litigation, risk management, and many other issues in the alcohol industry.
While limited interaction with cannabis has been legalized and regulated in Washington and Oregon, its illegal status under federal law has not changed. This unique framework has created an immensly complicated and sensitive regulatory framework. While the cannabis industry is gaining mainstream legitimacy, this is still a highly complex industry to operate in. However, compliance with regulations is more important in this industry than most other industries. We have been following the legalization of cannabis across the nation from the beginning and have successfully represented multiple clients with cannabis law related issues. Our attorneys assist clients in Washington and Oregon with producer, processer, wholesaler, and retailer license applications; license transfers; compliance audits; cannabis business entity formation; cannabis business operating documents; cannabis business litigation; partnership disputes; consumer disputes; and more.
