Famili Named to Daily Journal’s 2022 Top Cannabis Lawyers List

Top Cannabis Lawyers 2022 - Anita Famili
– Daily Journal

Leader of Manatt’s Cannabis and CBD and Real Estate Transactions and Finance practices Anita Famili was recognized on Daily Journal’s inaugural Top Cannabis Lawyers list.  

Famili said she joined Manatt because “it is such a progressive, innovative firm,” and that translated into how her real estate practice started representing cannabis operators in a 2013 deal in Colorado. Recognized for her role shaping how cannabis deals are done in the U.S., Famili said she was excited to see the budding industry taking shape.  

“We knew that California was moving toward recreational use, and we saw that we could be on the western frontier of the cannabis business,” Famili told Daily Journal. “Sure, there were bad actors, but mainly there were a lot of good people who wanted to do business right. At the start, 99% of big firms weren’t doing this, so it made me proud and excited to be helping the early players.”
