We  had 5 law firms at the conference with their main practice strategy being cannabis in Oregon.

We wonder how many Californian firms will be doing the same, this time next year.

Although there’s a bit of a lull because of the Washington DC and Sessions” guessing what’s happening next effect”  we’d suggest bigger firms start taking a more serious look at the sector on a state and national level and initially they need to work out how they will be recruiting if they decide to build teams.

Around the country there are now SME’s with an ever growing base of knowledge and skill in the sector and it may become increasingly difficult and expensive for Am Lawyer 200 firms to get into the game if they have to end up buying partnerships or engineering mergers in order to gain the attorneys with the clients and the knowledge in the industry.

Here are the 5 firms that attended the Cannabis Collaborative Conference this week in Portland.
