MG Retailer, which provides business news and in-depth analysis for cannabis industry professionals, writes:
Broadly defined, litigation is the process of resolving a dispute between opposing parties through the court system. In business, any relationship—with vendors, suppliers, employees, customers, or competitors—is subject to misunderstanding and miscommunication that can result in litigation. In the burgeoning legal cannabis industry, the opportunity for such occurrences is greatly pronounced.
Matters most often turning up in litigation involve issues such as ownership or partnership disputes, commercial contracts, employment disputes, trademarks and patents, real estate and landlord disputes, product liability, taxes, insurance, and even appellate advocacy, though more rarely than the aforementioned. For each such concern, there are litigating attorneys who specialize in the intricacies.
