Whistler Partners is pleased to announce the placement of Michael McQueeny (Counsel, New York) in Foley Hoag's Cannabis practice.
"As counsel, McQueeny advises businesses, including investors, processors, distributors, retailers and cultivators, on the regulation of the cannabis and CBD industry, with a primary focus on New Jersey, which is considering an adult use referendum in November, and New York. He also counsels clients regarding licensing of cannabis and CBD-related entities and advises them on federal and state legislation and regulations and local laws governing the growth, processing, sale and use of cannabis."
The move was led by recruiter Tad Gruman, who's been watching the legal cannabis space, and its complex regulatory landscape, closely. "Mike has positioned himself nicely to not only be the leading Cannabis attorney in the rapidly growing New Jersey market (Governor Murphy Tweeting his support yesterday, 'Legalize It') but the entire Tri-State area. With a deep knowledge, passion and network, Mike is a trusted advisor, author and speaker in the Cannabis space.
"His move to Foley Hoag, already leading the charge in Massachusetts and throughout other areas of the country, affords him a broader platform to serve as an expert to his quickly expanding client list."
While searching for a practice that would be at the forefront of cannabis regulation and legalization on the national stage, Tad says that Mike was "understandably very patient and thoughtful about his move and waited for the right group. Joining Kevin Conroy, Jesse Alderman and Erica Rice made perfect sense and he's really excited about the future of the practice."
