Description

Two experienced attorneys – one who specializes in legal ethics, and the other in the cannabis industry – will consider the possible answers to both ethical and business questions that might arise in the course of representing a cannabis client, including: What is the scope of work you can take on for a client engaged in a cannabis business? How do you assess the ethical risks of doing so? May you accept attorneys’ fees paid by a cannabis business? Does taking an interest in a cannabis start up in lieu of fees create a conflict of interest? How do you reconcile the tax implications for clients operating in multiple states? As a practicing lawyer, are you allowed to use cannabis for medicinal or recreational purposes? Join us for an exploration of the ethical implications for lawyers seeking to represent cannabis clients, and how to best navigate the patchwork of evolving regulations over the marijuana industry.
