Obtaining a bank account can be a challenge for members of the cannabis industry. Vicente Sederberg LLP works with marijuana and hemp businesses, financial institutions, and governmental bodies to help our clients access the depository and financial services they need to be successful.
Through our mastery of cannabis regulatory compliance, extensive industry experience, and strong network of banking and credit union contacts, we have developed a deep understanding of the issues financial institutions consider when they are deciding whether to service cannabis-related clients. We know what they want to see and what they must avoid, and we have used this knowledge to provide guidance to banks and credit unions across numerous jurisdictions on how to minimize their risks when working with cannabis-related clients. We also employ it to assist all types of plant-touching and ancillary businesses in securing transparent and long-lasting banking relationships.
