Lukian Kobzeff is a partner in the Rimon’s Los Angeles office, whose practice primarily focuses on transactional cannabis law. Mr. Kobzeff concentrates on advising, assisting, and guiding operators, entrepreneurs, and investors in the burgeoning (and highly regulated) cannabis industry. He provides guidance to clients seeking to navigate the rigorous and complex process of acquiring cannabis operational licenses from local cities and counties, in order to complete the arduous state licensing process. He provides regulatory guidance for licensed clients, assisting with packaging and labeling requirements, intellectual property usage and licensing, management companies, track-and-trace requirements, limited access rules, security and recordkeeping requirements, along with insight and explanation of the multiple sets of regulations and guidance issued by the three state governing bureaus.
Mr. Kobzeff also has experience in company and corporate formation, as well as entity structuring within the confines of the cannabis regulations. This experience also extends to asset and stock purchase transactions with respect to cannabis-specific and cannabis ancillary clients looking to expand, diversify, or divest their cannabis portfolio. He has strong working knowledge in drafting and reviewing supply chain agreements, intellectual property licensing agreements, white label agreements, tolling agreements, and management agreements. Mr. Kobzeff often provides cannabis regulatory guidance to companies (and their M&A and securities attorneys) as the companies seek to engage in mergers and acquisitions, take the company public, or do series financing. He prides himself on crafting nuanced and creative solutions to enable clients to expand and grow within the highly regulated boundaries of the industry.
Collaborative by nature, Mr. Kobzeff is passionate about helping clients through 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.
Prior to joining Rimon, Mr. Kobzeff was at one of California’s first boutique cannabis transactional law firms.
