With the passing of the first Arab medical cannabis law by Lebanon, W&W established the first medical cannabis practice area focused on the Middle East region.
We counsel pharmaceutical companies, manufacturers, sellers and buyers of know-how, cannabis medicinal apparatus companies, biotech companies, cannabis real estate companies, and private investors looking to explore the medical cannabis market in Lebanon.
Our medical cannabis practice clients are global, but are generally based out of the United States, Canada, China, Europe and Lebanon.
We assist in navigating licensing, insurance, and foreign corrupt practices laws and regulations including import and export licensing, regulatory scheme compliance, cannabis for medical use insurance and taxation, landlord and tenant disputes arising out of medical cannabis plantations and operations, and liability issues arising out of medical cannabis.
Our practitioners also assist foreign and Lebanese companies and investors in joint venture efforts for medical cannabis corporate formation and governance.
