Having advised this industry since 2013, we recognize that our nimble and creative style has been perfectly aligned to support the growth of the cannabis industry in Canada and our clients. We have a broad range of clients for whom we balance the sophistication of their risk with a scarcity of insurer capital. We understand this business deeply from our work in bringing companies through an IPO, their licensing stages, providing specialized crop coverage, handling facilities from construction through production, and structuring M&A insurance.


Cannabis is a relatively new industry in Canada and we take pride in educating our clients on the risk transfer available to them and take the time to explain the coverages they may be required contractually to carry. We leverage our experience in insuring entrepreneurs, public companies, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and agri-business to bring the best advice and risk management practices to our clients to protect both their investment and most importantly their clients from harm. Whether it be THC, CBD or hemp, we are here to help.
