Why You Should Attend
The cannabis industry continues to grow quickly as is the legal industry supporting it. Firms of all sizes and attorneys in various practice areas are being asked to offer counsel and advice on regulatory compliance, large-scale disputes, national and international expansion, complicated corporate structures, and the development of domestic and global intellectual portfolios--all while managing the risk involved with operating a business that is still federally unlawful. If you are considering serving cannabis clients or already do so, this is a must-attend program on the legal and business issues you will confront every day. You will learn about the legal landscape in the cannabis industry and how to raise money and grow a cannabis business. You will also examine intellectual property issues and disputes while learning how to best serve your current or prospective clients, as they seek to enter or grow within this legal industry.
