Ethics Representing Cannabis Clients

Featuring: Omar Figueroa
Representing clients in the cannabis industry presents a unique set of challenges. Attorneys in this field can draw the attention of law enforcement, and therefore must be careful not only of violating ethics rules, but also of running afoul of the law. Veteran industry attorney Omar Figueroa will give you tips to help navigate the ethical and legal minefield of giving legal advice to marijuana industry clients. Program highlights include: Continuing tension between state and federal laws; giving legal advice vs. acting as a business consultant; limitations on involvement; and applying the Rules of Professional Conduct.
