Cannabis

The Committee’s core mission is to facilitate a forum to promote education on claims and litigation management relative to all aspects of the cannabis industry including current legal and regulatory compliance, claims handling and litigation management best practices that are unique to this highly regulated industry and related underwriting issues. As the risks and insurance needs of licensed cannabis companies cross multiple legal areas and all insurance lines, much greater attention to its impacts on insurance is necessary for this expending sector of the economy. The Committee will educate CLM membership to effectively manage claims and litigation in this challenging regulatory environment.

9/14/2021 Join us on Thursday, Sept. 30th at 2:00 pm ET for an engaging Cannabis webinar:
 
The Ethics of Cannabis Law and Claims Handling (CE/CLE Requested)
Speakers: Ian Stewart, Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker LLP and Stacey Jackson, Golden Bear Insurance Company
 
The ethical considerations around the representation of cannabis clients, and the handling of cannabis-related claims and litigation, are complex and evolving. Lawyers and claims professionals, particularly those who maintain law licenses, who wish to counsel and assist clients in the space must determine whether specific work for cannabis clients is legal, ethical, and/or prudent. This presentation will identify current best practices used by the cannabis insurance industry to perform due diligence on their cannabis insureds, and ethical scenarios that have confronted claims professionals in this space. We will discuss how the courts have tried to reconcile enforcing the rights of cannabis-related claimants and litigants in both state and federal courts.
 
For CLM’s credit-bearing webinars, CLM will report the CE and/or CLE credits for its CLM members/fellows upon satisfactory completion of the webinar.
 
Join CLM prior to this webinar to receive your CE/CLE for completing it.
