This interactive panel discusses practical tips cannabis companies can use when entering contracts to avoid future disputes – and to position themselves to win if such disputes arise. The four attorney panel, a deal lawyer, an experienced mediator and arbitrator, and two business litigation attorneys all with experience working with cannabis companies will share their perspectives, using real world business hypotheticals to illustrate their tips. The panel will focus on (i) disputes that may arise from agreements among founders, claims over intellectual property ownership, letters of intent, financing terms, and leases; and (ii) how provisions regarding alternative dispute resolution, indemnification, limitations on liability, and attorneys’ fees factor into the analysis.
