– Cannabis/Marijuana Industry News

Many brands and manufacturers are quickly catching on to the value of CBD following the recent passing of the Farm Bill in December of last year. Operating with the hopes of capitalizing on the rapidly shifting cannabis landscape, these brands are attempting to trademark their CBD products behind closed doors in the hopes of becoming the next “Coca Cola” of the industry. It’s a problem that’s so widespread that The American Business Law Journal even released a paper last year detailing the ways in which “innovative entrepreneurs disrupt legal regimes for strategic advantage” with relation to marijuana derived products.

With CBD set to become a $2.1 billion industry by 2020 it seems as though the CBD industry is accelerating faster than most businesses can handle. That’s why Chelsie Spencer, an intellectual property attorney licensed in Texas and Florida who specializes in CBD compliance laws, is such a necessity.

A partner of the Texas based law firm Ritter Spencer, Chelsie handles transactional and litigation work for clients ranging from startups to large corporations. Her continued work with medical marijuana and hemp makes her one of the few experts in an industry that’s constantly in flux. Chelsie manages everything from helping clients secure their trademark registrations to drafting copyright licensing agreements to ensure that no brand has a monopoly on CBD products. She’s a rare friendly face in the midst of a cutthroat CBD hurricane, the person you want on speed dial when things turn sour.

One of the issues Chelsie manages on a daily basis is enforcing and defending claims of copyright, patent or trademark infringement.
