Nevada and California Dirt to Dollars Attorneys
Helping Our Entrepreneurs Navigate from
Idea to Exit
Nevada and California's cannabis industry is one of the states' fastest growing trades, with the recent legalization of recreational products further contributing to an explosion of new businesses. Many of these opportunities are lucrative, but succeeding in the industry requires a deep knowledge of how to navigate the state’s stringent regulations.
The cannabis industry is still in many ways uncharted territory—with local, state, and federal laws continuing to evolve. To succeed, you will likely need the support of qualified legal professionals familiar with the innerworkings of state bureaucracies and industry players.
How We Can Help Your Cannabis Business
Our Nevada and California dirt-to-dollars attorneys at Flynn Giudici can help take your cannabis business venture from idea to exit. We understand how to forge the deals you need to start your business, take it to the next level, and position you to make a profitable exit. Our robust knowledge of Nevada’s and California's cannabis supply chain, local and state regulatory boards, and best industry practices enables us to advise you on how to best initiate, grow, and elevate your new company.
Helping You Understand the Cannabis Industry in Nevada and California
We are prepared to support your business from the ground up. Cannabis is a unique industry that requires a full understanding of the relevant and constantly-changing regulations governing its cultivation, production, testing, distribution, and sale.
Our team can evaluate the goals of your business and advise on key business decisions. We are uniquely positioned in the cannabis space because we have extensive insight from working in the field to identify strategic opportunities and flag potential obstacles that could impact your venture. Our team knows the ins and outs of Nevada and California's cannabis industry and can ensure your business model will achieve the goals you are seeking. If you are new to the space, we can help you understand the legal risks and liabilities associated with entering the cannabis industry. Operating in the cannabis space requires special considerations for banking, insurance, tax accountants, and other critical service providers.
We can provide recommendations on proven vendors that will form the bedrock of your operation.
Getting started in the cannabis business requires licenses specific to the industry that can be extremely difficult to acquire. You will also need to meet the state and local zoning guidelines to establish a cannabis facility.
We understand what it takes to obtain these critical clearances. Our team can help you prepare, develop, and submit policy and procedure proposals that are in compliance with local and state regulations. We can also work directly with your officers and employees to ensure that they understand all steps that must be taken to comply with government rules.
Our team can also help you implement a seed-to-sale tracking program—a requirement in the state of Nevada. These programs track the entirety of your inventory in real time, from propagation to production to testing to point of purchase. While the state mandates that these programs give regulatory bodies and law enforcement access to your records as necessary, we can help optimize these programs to benefit both your business and your customers.
Starting a company means that you will need a litany of contracts. Our firm can help you develop agreements specific to the cannabis industry, including contracts with employees, suppliers, distributors, contractors, and support businesses.
This all amounts to a significant degree of red tape. Our team is prepared to help you cut through it. We are here to focus on navigating bureaucracy allowing you focus on building your successful business.

Positioning You to Benefit from Your Cannabis Business
Enabling your success means protecting you through all stages of a company’s life cycle. Our Nevada and California dirt-to-dollars attorneys are committed to providing ongoing legal counsel to help you mitigate risk and navigate any obstacle that might arise.
We can keep you apprised of changing local, state, and federal laws and enforcement strategies to proactively prepare your business for any necessary adjustments. Our lawyers can continue to work to ensure compliance across each stage of your supply chain, recognizing and amending operations before they become issues.
Like with all cannabis businesses operating in the United States, state law permitting its sale and use exists in contradiction with federal law. We remain current with federal enforcement guidance and can position your company to remain in compliance with relevant regulatory bodies, including the Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Department of Food and Agriculture, Drug Enforcement Administration, and Federal Trade Commission.
