Speaking topic: New York Marijuana Regulation and Taxation
Hinman Straub is one of the oldest law and government affairs firms in New York. Our practice dates from 1932. Hinman Straub has a diverse legal and regulatory practice with a focus on guiding clients from the sub-regulatory level through legislation and, if necessary, litigation. Our expansive knowledge base, coupled with our expertise in the regulatory and legislative environments allows us to identify leverage points that will accomplish our clients goals. We have been involved with the Marihuana Taxation and Regulation Act since its introduction, lobbying the legislature and now working with the Office of Cannabis Management. Our health care practice has informed our approach to OCM, as the bulk of personnel, has prior experience at DOH. Further, our legislative work has led to a strong relationship with members of the Control Board. Our experience in NYS government lends itself to a broad understanding of the regulatory framework in which OCM will operate, as well as the manner in which we approach the Office. We have presented on MRTA and OCM in continuing legal education seminars as well as cannabis expos and conferences.
