Graham Pechenik

Cannabis IP Attorney

Cannabis and Hemp Patenting is a topic that mystifies many business owners. Are your proprietary products, processes, and approaches patentable? Can companies come after you for work you are already doing, enforcing their patents to your detriment? Should businesses be looking at Trade Secrets rather than patents? One of the main barriers to answering these questions is the price and availability of cannabis IP attorneys. That’s why we are extremely excited to have Graham Pechenik of Calyx Law on the show on August 31st! Graham Pechenik works with cannabis and psychedelics clients to design and implement their patent and intellectual property strategies.

You'll Learn:

How to use (or not use) patents for your company

Types of patents that can apply to your cannabis business and how to think about them

How patents in cannabis and psychedelics contrast, and what we can learn from that
