Ansell Grimm & Aaron, PC announces that Zachary L. Windham has joined the firm to assist in the preparation of applications for cannabis licenses in the State of New Jersey. The addition of Mr. Windham expands the firm’s already robust Cannabis Law Practice Group, enabling it to further support its clients in licensing, corporate formation and governance, commercial leasing, contract negotiation and drafting, employee issues, capital raising and financing, and regulatory and municipal compliance.
Mr. Windham is an attorney and consultant to the cannabis industry who is widely recognized for his ability to support clients to accomplish business goals within the context of complex regulatory frameworks — including both the medical and adult-use markets, as well as industrial hemp and CBD ventures. Mr. Windham has successfully worked with clients to win numerous local competitive license processes, guided the state license process for nearly every license type, guided clients through multi-state expansion processes, and navigated the cannabis regulatory hurdles in dozens of commercial, real estate, and acquisition agreements.
Mr. Windham is admitted to practice in the states of Colorado, Florida, New York, Oregon, and Washington. He received his B.S. in Business with a dual-concentration in finance and marketing from New York University Stern School of Business and his J.D. from the University of Miami School of Law. Prior to joining Ansell, Grimm & Aaron, Mr. Windham served as the Legal & Financial Director of a Colorado-based Marijuana Business Operator.
