Shareholder Oren Bitan will be a panelist on the MCLE webinar, “Understanding the Complex Intersection of Cannabis and Real Estate,” put on by the LACBA’s Cannabis Section.  The panel will take place on Wednesday, October 7, 2020, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm.

Join LACBA’s Cannabis Section as they “Raise the Bar Higher” with a lively and engaging panel discussion about complicated real estate issues facing the state-legal cannabis industry, such as how landlords can protect themselves due to the federally illegal nature of tenants’ businesses; regulatory disclosure and compliance requirements for landlords and tenants; and zoning, permitting, and licensing concerns for cannabis tenants that should be considered prior to entering into a lease.  The panel will also discuss the impact of COVID-19 on cannabis leases, specifically the impact of force majeure provisions in leases and how tenants are modifying operations to comply with new COVID-19 requirements.
