Greenspoon Marder, an Am Law 200 and NLJ 350 law firm, and the Legal Learning Series, a leader in legal education, networking and events, announce today the launch of the First Annual Cannabis Law and Business Conference & Expo to be held on November 4 at the Bonaventure Resort and Spa in Weston, FL.
Focusing on laws affecting practitioners and businesses within the cannabis industry, the conference provides the opportunity to bring together the best thought leaders from around the country to explore the legal issues and challenges facing the sector and to educate those interested in the cannabis industry.
â€œThe firmâ€™s sponsorship of the First Annual Cannabis Law and Business Conference is a significant step in our efforts to serve the $5.4 billion legalized cannabis industry on a national level,â€ says Gerald Greenspoon, Co-Managing Director of Greenspoon Marder.
â€œWe are honored to work with the Legal Learning Series to make this event the prime destination for attorneys and business professionals looking to enter the industry or sharpen their knowledge.â€
As of 2016, 25 states in the U.S. plus Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and Guam have enacted laws to legalize medical marijuana. Florida and several other states are considering medical marijuana on the ballot in November. With the cannabis industry preparing to enter new states, it is critical for legal practitioners and business professionals alike to stay abreast of these issues and to get out in front of them wherever possible.
â€œWe are especially excited to have the support of our presenting sponsor Greenspoon Marder,â€ says Robert Friedman, Co-founder and Executive Director of Legal Learning Series. He continues, â€œHaving a national firm that is committed to taking a leadership position in the cannabis space as a partner in our endeavor has made all the difference. The support we receive from leading firms like Greenspoon Marder, and from our existing partners, allows us to provide the absolute best in quality programming and events for the legal community.”
Greenspoon Marder expanded its national corporate practice in highly-regulated industries to include Cannabis Law in June 2016, along with the opening of three new offices in Denver, Las Vegas and San Diego â€“ three cities in regions that are central to the advances, legalization and regulation of cannabis. The firm plans to continue to extend its presence and open additional offices in states that are likely to play a key role in shaping the cannabis industry.
