AREAS OF PRACTICE

He has taken and defended more than 75 depositions, including senior executives of major companies, expert witnesses, and class action representatives. He has led the briefing on, and argued, crucial motions including motions to dismiss, summary judgment, and class certification in major cases involving hundreds of millions of dollars or more in claimed damages.

CANNABIS BUSINESS ATTORNEY
The goal of the cannabis industry legal practice is to further California’s leadership as a model for responsible operation of legalized cannabis, guided by effective licensing and regulations. How well California’s industry adapts to the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act and Proposition 64 (the Adult Use of Marijuana Act) will play an important role in determining how fast, and how smoothly, the nation and the world leave behind the pernicious drug war model.
Kieran provides a full range of legal services to cannabis industry entrepreneurs, established companies, and investors, including relating to litigation, commercial agreements, and intellectual property. Core to all of this work is an understanding of how business structures and operations affect eligibility for licensing and regulatory compliance, and the unique needs of the cannabis industry given the governing legal structure.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ADVICE
Kieran advises on a range of intellectual property matters. His years of experience litigating major intellectual property disputes brings substantial experience to bear in advising clients on the risks and benefits of business strategies relating to intellectual property.
