Famili Named a 2022 Cannabis Law Trailblazer by The National Law Journal

Trailblazers: Cannabis Law
– The National Law Journal

Leader of Manatt’s Real Estate Transactions and Finance practice and the Cannabis and CBD practice Anita Famili was recognized as a 2022 Cannabis Law Trailblazer by The National Law Journal for being an agent of change in the cannabis industry.  

In her profile, Famili recounted how her work on cannabis deals has evolved over time and what it was like in the early years of her practice. “The ‘green rush’ was in its infancy and the field of unknowns was vast,” she said. “Rather than being intimidated by this or turning my back on an industry that has not yet gained widespread legitimacy, I viewed it as a challenge and my responsibility to help establish some stability for the market.” Despite the success that Famili has helped spur in this market, she noted that there is still work to be done. “The legal progress we have made in this country, from both a regulatory and a deal market standpoint, will have significant implications for the global cannabis market,” she said. “I am proud of my contributions to that.”
