We are excited to share that two of our team members have been included in the Top 200 Global Psychedelic Lawyers and Policy & Regulatory Experts List by the Cannabis Law Report! Dave Kopilak and Sean Clancy are both shareholders at Emerge and have been driving forces in the psychedelics space.
Dave was the primary drafter of Oregon’s Psilocybin Services Act (“Measure 109”) which was approved by Oregon voters on November 3, 2020. Dave was also an advisor to the Oregon Health Authority regarding IRC 280E and tax issues facing psilocybin businesses under Measure 109. As a seasoned corporate business attorney, he brings sharp insight and decades of legal experience to the numerous challenges that Oregon-licensed psilocybin businesses face.
Sean was also part of the small team of Emerge Law Group attorneys that researched and drafted Measure 109. In September 2022, he served on an Oregon Health Authority Rules Advisory Committee, providing recommendations about the rules that will govern the Measure 109 program. As a general business attorney who also specializes in intellectual property, Sean represents psychedelic clients on both routine and complex matters including high value brands and technology, plus all variety of contracts and strategic relationships.
As a full-service business law firm that has specialized in the cannabis space for many years, while also serving a variety of conventional industries, Emerge Law Group is familiar with the unique and complex issues that businesses and individuals face in an emerging and highly regulated industry. Emerge Law Group currently assists a variety of clients in connection with Oregon’s psilocybin law and the legal psychedelics space.
