Kai has been a business and corporate lawyer in Germany for almost 17 years gaining wide range of experiences in the process. He is very familiar with the interconnectivity between national and European regulations, especially in regard to consumer protection, product safety and emerging new cannabis products.

He regularly speaks at international cannabis conferences on topics of the German and European legal framework. Lastly, he spoke at the Cannabis Expo in Johannesburg, at the ICBC 2021 in Berlin and at the ICBC and CB Expo 2021 in Zurich on the legal framework for a future recreational cannabis market in Germany. He regularly publishes articles in BusinessCann and German law journals. Kai and his law firm KFN+ advise major CBD and medical cannabis companies, as well as companies interested in the emerging recreational cannabis market.

Kai is also legal advisor to the European Industrial Hemp Association (EIHA), which is working on a Novel Food joint application for different CBD products.
