One of the world’s leading legal directories and authorities on the legal sector, Chambers & Partners, has teamed up with the award-winning Cannabis Law and Regulatory Team at Mackrell.Solicitors to release its first Medical Cannabis & Cannabinoid Regulation Practice Guide.

The newly published guide, which includes information and advice from law firms in Canada, Mexico, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and the UK, was carefully curated, drafted and edited by the Cannabis Law and Regulatory Team of London and Birmingham-based national and international law firm Mackrell.Solicitors.

Covering a wide range of regulatory issues in each jurisdiction, this new publication serves as the seminal legal practice guide to support the global cannabis industry.

Favoured by in-house counsels and entrepreneurs around the world, Chambers and Partners guides are widely relied upon to deliver the latest advice, regulatory and legislative developments and market insight.

A Partner and Head of the Cannabis Law and Regulatory Team at Mackrell.Solicitors, said: “There is a growing demand for accurate and insightful advice on the medical cannabis and cannabinoid regulations around the world from those already in the industry, entrepreneurs that are just starting out, as well as investors.

“Up until now there hasn’t been an authoritative legal guide to rely on, so we are delighted to have worked with Chambers and Partners and our peers around the world to produce this new guide.”

The launch of the first-ever Medical Cannabis & Cannabinoid Regulation Guide is a landmark moment for this fast-growing area of law and could be a signifier of its entry into the mainstream.

Working with Chambers and Partners, Mackrell.Solicitors and the other contributing firms hope to produce regular updates to this guide, adding additional jurisdictions to the list as interest in the cannabis sector grows globally.

“The cannabis industry is expanding at a rapid rate and the regulations that bind businesses continue to change in response to new research and public perceptions of medical cannabis and other cannabis-derived products,”.

“This guide will not only give the industry a clearer picture of the current laws, but it helps to signpost businesses to the world’s top experts.”

The guide’s contributing editors Mackrell.Solicitors’ specialist industry lawyers, Elliott Rolfe and Nick Earles explore the ins and outs of the UK’s various regulations by drawing on their knowledge and experience as some of the leading lights in the cannabis sector.
