Dingeman Dancer

Cannabis Law

Marijuana legislation, including regulatory standards, are developing at a rapid pace and Dingeman & Dancer, PLC attorneys can help you navigate through this process. Dingeman& Dancer, PLC provides up-to-date counseling and legal advice to potential cannabis entrepreneurs to operate efficiently, confidently, and within the law. 

The attorneys within Dingeman & Dancer are a specialized practice group of cannabis business attorneys and expert financial consultants licensed in multiple states in the region. We combine our unique industry experience and business acumen to provide our clients expert compliance advice as cannabis laws continue to evolve.  Cannabis entrepreneurs will face significant regulatory hurdles. State legislatures establish rigorous license qualification, and local municipalities impose their own, unique operating requirements.  Our attorneys and consultants are equipped to defend our clients throughout every step of the application and licensing process, including appeals.  We provide prompt, innovative and thoroughly analyzed arguments before all government agencies.

Selecting the appropriate operating entity is critical. Partnerships, corporations, and limited liability companies all legally distinct and provide individual advantages to your specific business.  Additionally, the type of entity you select will naturally require additional structuring—including partnership and corporate shareholder agreements,  for starters. Our team has years of experience establishing businesses from the ground up.

Our team is one of the few in the State of Michigan to successfully obtain operating licenses on behalf of its clients. 

Our services include:

  • Prepare state and local applications for operating licenses
  • Presentations and hearings before municipalities
  • Defend against fines and penalties assessed
  • Corporate entity selection and filing

  • Operating Agreements
  • Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Property Purchase Agreements
  • Commercial Leases
