CLE: Bankruptcy & Cannabis

As cannabis legalization continues to expand across the country, there are a number of issues that attorneys must confront when representing clients who want to be a part of the cannabis industry. One issue that many lawyers do not think about is what happens if a client’s cannabis dreams go up in smoke! Professor Peter Alexander will talk about the challenges that debtors face if they try to seek bankruptcy relief when they are involved—directly or indirectly—in the cannabis industry. Bankruptcy is likely not an option for these clients because federal law regards cannabis growers or sellers as engaging in criminal activity. More importantly, recent bankruptcy decisions suggest that debtors who are not directly involved in the cannabis industry may also be denied bankruptcy relief, so if you represent landlords who rent space to businesses involved in the cannabis industry or if you have clients whose business relationships have even a slight connection to the cannabis industry, you need to attend this CLE program!
