Guiding Cannabis Enterprise

Startups        Expansion      Restructure  


Successfully navigating cannabis is all about the pivot. Plans are important; but how you pivot at the unexpected decides your fate.  


I'm not just a business attorney - I've cofounded two of California's larger cannabis companies. I have not just counseled cannabis clients, I've also been that client, navigating the turbulence of this emerging market. Few others can offer that unique combination and wealth of perspective.

Whether you are seeking outside general counsel or tactical business consulting, you've come to the right place."

I've helped many founders strategize, prioritize and implement the enterprise vision.



I've helped leaders develop, implement and adjust expansion strategies as markets dictate. 



I've helped teams asses, plan and implement comprehensive restructure strategies.



The speed of the Cannabis Industry evolution is giving rise to more and more business disputes. 

As Expert Witness, I educate attorneys and jurists on how the cannabis supply chain works, but also provide insider context around cultural nuances, industry norms and how those have evolved over specific periods of time.

Once the cannabis industry finally settles and stabilizes, it will have people like Gavin Kogan to thank. He’s keenly aware of balancing the legacy roots of our industry pioneers, with the pragmatism and discipline necessary to create, manage and grow a tightly margined, capitol-starved and regulation strangled businesses.
