Mr. Keller and Mr. Kobzeff join Rimon from the Frontera Law Group, a boutique cannabis firm.
“The cannabis industry is a rapidly-growing and constantly-evolving business sector one that requires the advice of top tier attorneys to navigate the unique complexities of compliance along with the traditional challenges of a business trying to grow,” said Rimon CEO Michael Moradzadeh. “owners, investors, cultivators, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and sellers must comply with a dizzying array of complex regulatory and licensing processes in order to survive and succeed in the cannabis business.”
“This is a perfect industry for Rimon. Our attorneys have long been at the forefront of newly developing industries. Justin and Lukian, who have been involved in developing the cannabis legal space from the very beginning, are a great fit for Rimon. They have the legal and business knowledge to help companies succeed. We are proud to welcome them to Rimon,” said Mr. Moradzadeh.
Mr. Keller assists the full spectrum of cannabis industry clients, from farmers to tech start-ups, from industry advocates and legacy operators to publicly-traded cannabis companies, with regulatory compliance, corporate formation, administration, and governance, commercial and supply chain transactions, mergers and acquisitions, investments and fundraising, as well as guidance and counsel on a wide variety of legal and business issues that arise in the nascent cannabis industry.
Mr. Kobzeff has been a leader in representing companies in the early stages of growth in California’s expanding cannabis industry, as well as easing traditional business veterans into the unique and colorful cannabis industry. Mr. Kobzeff’s clients include legacy operators, vertically integrated mid-size companies, publicly traded companies, small investors, cannabis-specific funds, well-known industry brands, and cannabis-ancillary companies.
“We are delighted to bring our cannabis and hemp specific knowledge base to Rimon,” said Justin Keller. “Rimon’s platform, which has a true global reach and a core of recognized and experienced attorneys is the perfect complement to our practice; at Rimon we feel we can meaningfully provide full-service legal representation to the cannabis industry.”
