Fraser Trebilcock Shareholder Sean P. Gallagher has been selected to serve as Chair of the firm’s Cannabis Law practice group. "The fast-growing cannabis industry in Michigan offers significant opportunities for growers, processors, retailers, secure transporters, testing facilities, and ancillary businesses. But the complex and ever-evolving legal and regulatory framework at both the state and local levels, along with marketplace dynamics, creates challenges for both cannabis entrepreneurs and municipalities alike," said Sean.
Sean has experience in the highly regulated cannabis industry, working with local and state officials to advance client interests and to help mitigate risks involved and increase opportunities. His involvement includes active participation with the Michigan Cannabis Industry Association (MiCIA) and its Summer Annual conference since its inception in 2019. Working alongside industry leaders allows Sean to stay on top of any new developments affecting the industry.
With experienced attorneys in licensing and regulatory compliance, litigation, corporate transactions, real estate transactions, taxation, banking, estate planning, and other matters of importance to cannabis industry clients, Fraser Trebilcock’s cannabis group can address all the key issues cannabis companies face. Fraser Trebilcock's significant presence in Lansing, along with former state legislators with the firm's ranks, means that Fraser Trebilcock has strength in government relations and legislative advocacy as well.
