On May 28, Law Seminars International will be putting on a seminar entitled, “Cannabis and Real Estate in Washington.” This seminar will be taking place at the Washington State Convention Center and also via a webinar on the net.

This seminar will address “the challenging legal issues surrounding the use of real property for the new commercial cannabis industry. Experts will discuss the continuing conflict between federal and state law marijuana and how that conflict impacts real property decisions. Topics of discussion will include asset forfeiture as a tool of federal enforcement, insurance options for real property and business owners, negotiation points for lease transactions, and land use permitting hurdles faced by applicants for marijuana business licenses and their landlords.”

Canna Law Group’s own Hilary Bricken will be co-chairing this event and speaking on “Land Use, Municipal Permitting, and Related Litigation” and CLG’s Robert McVay will be speaking on Cannabis banking. Hilary has represented a number of cannabis businesses in lawsuits against cities and Robert has represented a number of financial institutions in assisting them in how to take on cannabis companies as clients.  

Other speakers at this event will include, Sean O’Conner, Assistant Dean at the University of Washington Law School and Rick Garza, Director of the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Control Board and Randy Simmons, the Board’s Financial Director, along with a number of leading insurance, real estate, and criminal law experts.
