OCG welcomes the Kent Anderson Law Office to our "Green Room Live" Friday Guest Speaker Series! Representatives from this Law Firm will be on hand to discuss and answer questions regarding Cannabis Law for Businesses. Topics include: legal issues, excise tax, copyright law and how it applies to branding of product and more!
Starting, running and growing a business in the cannabis industry is a challenging endeavor, made even more difficult by the disconnect between state and federal law. The everyday issues of running your business, paying your taxes, developing new technologies and building your brand require special attention.
Kent Anderson Law Office specializes in issues involving taxes, restructuring, commercial litigation, and intellectual property for cannabis businesses.
They will be presenting information about how to stay out of trouble and what to do if you get into trouble.
Dominic Paris will be talking about common tax issues that might affect your business, including:
• Cannabis excise taxes
• Payroll taxes
• Income taxes (choice of entity, audits, and the basics of Internal Revenue Code Section 280E)
Jesse London will be talking about how to build your brand and protect your intellectual property including trademarks, copyright, trade secrets, and patents with a focus on differences between the federal and state laws.
