About the Event

The cannabis industry continues to grow quickly, as does 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. You will learn about the legal landscape in the cannabis industry, what's hot in today's cannabis legal sector, litigation issues, and how best to develop a strong intellectual property portfolio.  This program also has groundbreaking sessions on ethics and substance abuse. If you are considering serving cannabis clients or already do, this is a must-attend event on the legal and business issues you will confront every day.

CLEs are available for this event. Register here.
