Cannabis Europa is excited to announce Epperly | Elam as a supporting partner of Cannabis Europa Madrid at the Intercontinental Hotel on February 10th.
Epperly | Elam is a San Francisco-based law firm, founded on the premise that law should be used as a proactive measure to explore opportunities for clients, rather than just as a way of solving problems when they arise. Since the firm’s inception, they have provided California’s early cannabis pioneers with the expert legal support needed to navigate the ever-fluctuating field of cannabis regulations.
In addition to their work within cannabis law, the firm provides services in other areas of practice, including intellectual property matters, business litigation, and corporate and real estate transactions.
We work with North American clients and European partners to facilitate brand expansion and access to transatlantic private capital. In the longer term, we view transatlantic venture capital and mergers and acquisitions as an eventual reality. To that end, it’s critical that our firm remains actively involved with the early development of the European cannabis market, so that we have a deeper understanding of legacy issues and risks as the global market develops. — Beau Epperly, Partner at Epperly | Elam.
Epperly | Elam will be joining Cannabis Europa Madrid to share their insight into navigating all aspects of the cannabis business startup cycle.
Epperly | Elam is viewed as the leading Californian law firm in representing venture-backed companies and investors in cannabis deals. To date, the firm has counseled hundreds of cannabis investors and entrepreneurs through the complexities of cannabis business formation, regulatory compliance requirements, and general business negotiations.
The state of California is home to the largest legal cannabis market in the world, with projections for 2019 estimating the coastal giant may have brought in more than $3.1 billion USD in legal cannabis sales. As state regulators consider further changes to state cannabis law aimed at tackling the problematic illicit cannabis market, law firms like Epperly | Elam who are experienced with the cannabis industry will play a key role in ensuring mature businesses continue to thrive.
Join us on February 10th at the Intercontinental Hotel in Madrid to discover the latest news from the European cannabis sector, learn from our world-renowned speakers and network with industry-leading professionals.
