“The team at Bridge West is very professional, experienced and respectful of time sensitive requests. To say that they are very hands-on is an understatement. I strongly recommend the Bridge West team without hesitation. I’ve been fortunate to have them by my side.”

Flor Gilmour-Nin

Chief Financial Officer - Curaleaf

“When we were submitting our Louisiana permit application in 2017, Peter Prevot and the Bridge West team guided us every step of the way from start to finish. Throughout the challenging process, we leaned heavily on Peter and relied on his industry experience to manage every aspect of our proposal, including the real estate selection, security, and recruiting key employees. In 2018, we were very pleased to be awarded one of the nine Louisiana dispensary permits. Over the years, we have had the pleasure of working with Peter in a wide range of advisory roles, and as our Regulatory and Political Consultant, we value his guidance and industry insights.”

Greg Morrison

Founder - Delta Medmar

“I met Peter in 2015, as Louisiana’s medical marijuana program was first being established. We consider Peter a member of our team, and over the past six years, he has been a strong industry advocate and a trusted advisor. As our regulatory and political consultant, Bridge West always stays on top of industry legislation and their guidance is invaluable as we navigate every challenge.”

Randy Mire

Founder - Capitol Wellness

“I first met Peter Prevot in 2018 when Ilera Holistic Healthcare became the Cultivator/Processor for the State of Louisiana through a strategic partnership with Southern University. Working closely together, Peter and I have successfully collaborated on a variety of projects, including a vertically integrated license application, tax minimization strategies, and addressing state-level regulatory issues. Peter and the Bridge West team deeply understand this ever-changing industry and work extremely well under tight deadlines. In this challenging and highly regulated environment, it is invaluable to have the Bridge West team on my side.”

Dr. Chanda Macias

Chief Executive Officer - Ilera Holistic Healthcare

“I first started working with Peter Prevot in early 2017 when I was the manager of Telegraph Health in Berkeley, CA. Later that year, Peter and I collaborated on two dispensary applications. I was very impressed with Peter’s depth of industry knowledge and experience and both applications were ranked #1 in their respective regions. Over the years, I maintained contact with Peter, and last year, I transitioned into a management role at Old Route 66, a dispensary in Missouri. As our industry grows and strategic plans evolve and change, Bridge West is always available to support us, fuel our growth plans, and help us achieve our goals.”
