Cannabis

We help you navigate the challenges of the industry and drive your growth agenda.

The cannabis industry is blossoming. With the upcoming legalization of cannabis for recreational use by the Federal Government, the sector is expected to grow as producers, manufacturers, and companies from across the value chain embrace opportunities in both the recreational and medical markets.

Where there is opportunity there is also uncertainty. Disruption in the sector is a question of when, not if, as existing companies grow, large adjacent players may enter and the regulatory environment continues to evolve. If you are a cannabis company, an investor or potential investor, you know there are considerable issues and challenges rapidly approaching.

Our dedicated cannabis specialists can help you navigate the road ahead. We will help you identify and secure the right strategies, capabilities, partnerships and tools for success.
