Description

Many states that have permitted attorneys to advise cannabis industry clients under Rule 1.2 have set forth a threshold requirement that the attorney “also advise” on “related federal law” or “other laws.” Since the permitted scope of legal representation begins with this threshold requirement, hear from the panel about what “also advise” means in practice, including what federal laws are considered “related,” how to determine if federal law “conflicts” with what your client seeks to do, and how to ensure you have adequately advised your client to comply with the new Rule 1.2 provision. This rule affects attorneys in: AK, AZ, CA, CO, CT, FL, HI, IL, ME, MA, NV, NH, NJ, OH, OR, PA, RI, WV. May also affect attorneys in OK and GA (no official rule changes yet, but as model rule states that have legalized forms of cannabis above federal limits, rule changes are pending).

Clear Resources


Amy McDougal, Founder and President at CLEAResources, LLC, helps companies effectively manage their greatest legal and regulatory risks. She designs compliance and ethics programs to mitigate legal risks so company executives can focus on business.

 

"Increased emphasis on business transparency makes ethical performance a corporate priority," says Amy. A company's legal counsel may lack experience in developing compliance and ethics programs. Amy draws on her background as a prosecutor and in-house compliance counsel to conduct risk assessments through the skilled eyes of an attorney, without the steep law firm fees. "I keep current on state and federal enforcement trends. My assessments prioritize a company's vulnerabilities and recommend actions so clients get the most legal risk mitigation for their dollar."

Amy's clients range from federal contractors to global corporations including in the nascent cannabis industry. They rely on her expertise in compliance, codes of ethics, staff training, corporate monitoring, auditing, and investigations."The savviest approach is to put your compliance program in place as a sword to prevent misconduct. If an incident occurs, your program then becomes your shield. Prompt reporting, a proactive response, and a solid plan to remediate future misconduct demonstrate a commitment to ethical practices and legal compliance."

A well-published thought leader, Amy is founding director and corporate secretary of the International Association of Independent Corporate Monitors. Through IAICM, she educates businesses and promotes service quality. Amy's place at the forefront of her profession reflects leadership ability honed by service as a U.S. Air Force officer.
