  • Top notch staff are often interested in how they are progressing over the course of their employment. We can provide a template on how to perform excellent employee reviews.
  • Developing strong interoffice communications is paramount when dealing with changing laws and regulations, especially as you continue to grow and manage more individuals. These systems can be difficult to establish and maintain.

Finder Services

  • Strategic partnerships are a must for any medical marijuana business, ensuring that each principal's core competencies are put to good work. We'll help analyze your strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to find a match based on what the industry demands.
  • Once you've found an ally, we'll assist in finding investors, landlords, and attorneys that match your needs and then help in developing your operating agreement, one of the most important steps in finalizing the partnership.

It is critically important that you have every record required, in the correct format, and presented in a manner that makes the licensing authority's job as easy as possible. This daunting task, and the time required to do it correctly, is best left to our professionals.
