As the emerging cannabis market grows in New York State, Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP – a premier law firm with offices across Long Island – is pleased to announce the launch of its Cannabis Law practice, headed by CMM Partner Arthur Yermash. The new Cannabis practice group provides critical guidance for cannabis businesses, entrepreneurs, and service providers by leveraging the firm’s experience in diverse areas of the law including corporate, M&A, and labor and employment. Yermash, a corporate lawyer who has spent years advising on retail, wholesale, and pharmaceutical issues, is uniquely positioned to help clients meet the challenges and opportunities that come with the new legislation legalizing recreational marijuana in New York State.

“CMM has been tracking cannabis-related issues for years, and as a result, we were able to hit the ground running once the new legislation was passed,” said Yermash. “We have assembled a multidisciplinary team of attorneys that can advise clients on a range of issues related to this expanding industry.”

Adding another dimension to CMM’s services as a Forbes-recognized Top Corporate Law Firm in America, the Cannabis practice group focuses on providing clients with the most up-to-date guidance of the rules and regulations surrounding the growing cannabis market in New York.
