Sahar Ayinehsazian Joining Cannabis Litigation and Insurance Panel at 2021 NAPABA Convention
Dec 4, 2021
VS attorney Sahar Ayinehsazian is slated to speak at the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) Convention on December 10, 2021. Sahar will join a group of panelists for the session "Risky Business: Litigation Challenges and Insurance Solutions for the Cannabis Industry."
About the Panel
As of June 2021, the cannabis industry continues to experience rapid growth as 36 states have legalized the use of medical marijuana while 18 states have enacted legislation to regulate cannabis for adult use. Many of these products, however, remain unlawful at the federal level. Against this backdrop of ambiguity, the marketplace continues to rapidly advance and evolve and cannabis businesses are subject to risks of tort and product liability claims, and even professional liability claims unique to the industry. This panel will examine recent litigation that highlights the issues facing the cannabis/CBD/hemp industry, as it grapples with extraordinary growth, evolution, innovation, and uncertainty.
This program will also help attendees to better understand both the liability and the property/casualty insurance coverage available for their clients in the cannabis space, identify potential gaps in coverage, and secure coverage for their clients to allow them to manage the industry’s unique risks.
