Sichenzia Ross Ference LLP Launches Cannabis Law Group

Press Release – New York, NY – January 24, 2019 – Sichenzia Ross Ference LLP (“SRF”), a leading corporate securities and full service law firm, today announced that the firm has launched a specialty practice group devoted to servicing the legal needs of cannabis related businesses. SRF’s Cannabis Law Group is led by founding partner Marc J. Ross. The full release can also be found here.

Marc Ross, who is recognized for his knowledge and experience in this area, regularly speaks on topics concerning marijuana and marijuana-related businesses, including CLE credited seminars. Marc is also an adjunct law professor at Hofstra University School of Law, currently starting his fifth year of teaching one of the first classes in the United States dealing with marijuana and businesses, titled Business and Law of Marijuana.

SRF’s Cannabis Law Group combines SRF’s well regarded expertise in corporate, securities and business issues with its experience in marijuana and marijuana-related businesses to help cannabis clients, whether these clients “touch the plant”, are in an “ancillary” business, or grow, distribute and sell hemp or CBD.

As part of the Cannabis Law Group, the firm will feature a regular blog called “The Weekly Roll Up,” which will discuss and highlight new developments in the marijuana industry.  Also, as a result of Marc’s course program at Hofstra, SRF’s Cannabis Law Group plans to feature the “Professor’s Corner”, where Marc and his students will post position statements on issues covered in class, and enable other students to comment on those positions.  The firm invites the public to participate in what the firm anticipates will be vibrant and robust discussions.
