On December 16, 2021, shareholder Genny Kiley moderated the Legacy to Craft: Social Equity, Appellations, and Interstate Commerce panel at the 7th Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo hosted by the National Cannabis Industry Association. Genny was joined by panelists Nancy Do (Endo Industries), Mark Slaugh (iComply), and Omar Figeuroa (Law Offices of Omar Figueroa) to discuss the unique challenges legacy, traditional, and small cannabis operators face in today’s regulated cannabis market. Genny and the Emerge Law Group team enjoyed reconnecting with old friends, making new connections, and are looking forward to the next conference in July 2022!
