At Torkin Manes, our team of Cannabis lawyers have been at the forefront of this rapidly growing and accelerating industry predating the Canadian government’s 2018 legislation that made Canada one of the only countries in the world that legalized the use and possession of cannabis at the federal level. 

With a keen understanding of the complexities of the cannabis marketplace, we provide sound and strategic legal advice to both early stage and mature companies regarding organization, raising capital, licensing, M&A, listing on a recognized stock exchange (by way of IPO, CPC transaction or reverse takeover) and the ongoing requirements of being a public company in this sector. We focus on clients in the mid-market who expect first class service and advice in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

To maximize our client service, we leverage our multidisciplinary capabilities, with extensive knowledge and expertise in corporate finance, M&A, information technology, corporate governance, tax, corporate structuring, property leasing and real estate, employment & labour, fintech, litigation and regulatory matters. Our combined experience enables us to provide the necessary legal advice on a timely basis to ensure that our clients are well serviced and in a position to optimize their opportunities, especially in this ever changing cannabis landscape.
