Ariel Clark’s law firm are experts in Cannabis law – in Washington, California and elsewhere. She spoke at our June 2017 Marijuana Law 101 seminar (where she received great evaluations) and is expanding her practice to Northern California!

We wanted to pass on the Recorder’s article about her firm’s expansion, Women-Owned Cannabis Law Firm Expands in Northern California by Xiumei Dong.

After hiring three new associates to accommodate increased demand for legal services in the recreational cannabis businesses, Clark Neubert has opened offices in Sacramento and Santa Cruz. Congratulations Ariel!

Associate Joanna Hossack will head the firm’s office in Sacramento, while senior associate Nicole Laggner will head the firm’s Santa Cruz office.

Hossack specializes in the recently-passed Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act, and California’s evolving regulatory processes for cannabis. Laggner’s expertise is on cannabis business formation and compliance.

“Demand for legal services is skyrocketing as cannabis businesses get licensed and enter the adult use market,” said Ariel Clark. “This is an exciting but complex time for business owners. We’re growing to ensure our clients have every resource they need.”

We will be diving into the laws on the Marijuana business at our upcoming two-day conference on November 1st and 2nd in Los Angeles.

Cannabis Regulation in California

January 1st will mark the first day of legal adult use of recreational cannabis in California.  With an Instagram account and new website the Bureau of Cannabis Control in California will re-focus its purpose from regulating the medical industry to regulating the legal market for adult use.  Read more from The Recorder here.

With changing laws and regulations in California, and across the nation, it is more important than ever to stay up to date on the expanding area of law.  Recently, we held a cannabis law program in California which focused on advising clients in the new legal marijuana industry.  This program is currently available as an audio program.  You can find more information or purchase that here.
