State of the Cannabis Industry to be Discussed at Burns & Levinson’s Virtual Conference on October 29
Marijuana industry stakeholders will join attorneys from Burns & Levinson’s cannabis practice on October 29, 2020 for wide-ranging discussions on the state of the industry.
Hosted virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Burns and Levinson’s fourth annual conference will feature panels and presentations with several prominent cannabis industry figures, including Steven Hoffman, the chairman of the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission.
A keynote discussion with Curaleaf CEO Joseph Lusardi and Grassroots co-founder Mitchell Kahn, who combined their businesses earlier this year, is also planned.
The event will also feature conversations on the state of U.S. hemp and CBD markets, investing and capital raising, and navigating receiverships.
The investment session, moderated by Frank Segall, the co-chair of Burns and Levinson’s cannabis business and law advisory group, will feature several speakers, including Poseidon Asset Management managing director Emily Paxhia and Arcview Ventures CEO Jeffrey Finkle.
Tickets to the virtual event, taking place on Thursday, October 29 between 9 a.m. — 2 p.m., are $49 and can be purchased via Eventbrite.
“Even though we can’t physically be together like in previous years, we are very excited about this year’s conference and the opportunities for participants to make connections, develop partnerships and learn from our peers and industry leaders,” said Burns & Levinson’s Scott Moskol, co-chair of the cannabis practice.
According to a news release promoting the event, Burns & Levinson was the first major Boston law firm to develop a cannabis business practice. The firm has been advising cannabis businesses across the U.S. for over seven years.
Areas of focus include business formation and corporate structuring, private placements, venture capital, M&A, securities, and banking. Burns & Levinson also advises clients on debt and equity financing, restructuring and receiverships, real estate acquisitions and leasing, intellectual property protection, and 280E taxation issues.
