Business Acquisition Analysis


Are you planning to purchase a cannabis business? Before deciding, give yourself peace of mind knowing that you are purchasing what the seller has promised. This analysis will cover a review of the business permits and licenses, compliance history, and purchase agreement. Our review is complementary to legal representation and we welcome the opportunity to work with your attorney or recommend one from our network.

Our Business Acquisition Analysis is designed
to answer the following questions:

  • Does my new business have the advertised permits and licenses?
  • Are the permits and licenses active?
  • What steps need to be taken to bring the license current or clear any deficiencies?
  • What fees need to be paid now or in the near future?
  • Is this business in compliance with all relevant rules and regulations?
  • What are my compliance responsibilities moving forward?

Our Process
