Cannabis

On October 17, 2018 the legalization of recreational cannabis came into effect.  This significant change in the law brings with it new challenges for the insurance industry.  Dialogue surrounding the changes has focused on an anticipated increase in claims resulting from impairment related to cannabis use, as well as the emergence of new claims related to the cannabis sector.  Our firm brings its extensive litigation experience to its cannabis group, which addresses the legal implications for our clients arising from both the legalization of recreational cannabis, and the evolving landscape surrounding the medical use of cannabis.  This includes litigation and new developments in the areas of coverage, auto losses, property losses, commercial losses, employee risk, disability insurance, and life insurance. We at ZTGH have repeatedly risen to the forefront when navigating changes in the insurance industry for our clients.  We are prepared to litigate your cannabis-related matters.
