Offit Kurman Recognized As a Top 10 Law Practice for the Cannabis Industry

Maple Lawn, MD | September 26, 2017 Cannabis Business Executive (CBE) has named Offit Kurman’s Cannabis Law Group one of the top 10 cannabis law practices in the United States, as well as one of the top 150 ancillary businesses serving the cannabis industry.

 

The CBE Ancillary Business 150 recognizes companies in a variety of categories serving members of the cannabis industry. The list is a critical resource for cannabis retailers, producers, cultivators, and other licensees looking for business solutions.

“[These companies] provide cannabis industry licensees with the products and services they need to operate on a daily basis,” said Rob Meagher, CBE founder, president, and editor-in-chief. “More importantly, [each] company is generating significant revenues, employing workers, and paying significant taxes as active members of [this] competitive set—key criteria that CBE considers when vetting companies, most of which are private.”

Other entities on the CBE Ancillary Business 150 include category leaders such as Waters Corporation, Growers Supply, Leafly, Capsule Group, and Canna Security America. Offit Kurman is one of only three Maryland-based organizations on the list. To see the full ranking, click here.
