1. Jacob Stein is a Partner at Aliant, LLP, where he focuses his practice on private wealth work. Mr. Stein is one of the country’s best known and best regarded asset protection attorneys. He frequently consults clients on how to protect their assets from claims of federal and state governments and private creditors and also assists clients with offshore banking and wealth-holding structures. Mr. Stein is a frequent lecturer and a prolific author and has worked with many cannabis growers, distributors and related service providers to help them structure their asset and cash holdings.

2. Kenneth J. Berke is a licensed attorney with over 30 years of experience. In 2014, Mr. Berke combined his legal, business, and regulatory compliance expertise to co-found PayQwick, Inc. As PayQwick’s CEO, he has played an integral role in creating PayQwick’s BSA/AML and state law compliance programs. This has provided him with an in depth understanding of the compliance standards banks must satisfy when working with legal marijuana businesses and how they can avoid the risk of exposure to potential liability when banking these businesses. Additionally, through developing PayQwick, Mr. Berke has gained extensive experience implementing cash management protocols for marijuana businesses, which has greatly helped PayQwick’s partner banks and cannabis clients minimize the amount of cash they handle when working with legal marijuana businesses. Lastly, as PayQwick’s CEO, Mr. Berke has gained substantial experience advocating for marijuana banking reform before legislators, regulators, and government officials, which has given him a thorough understanding of what legislators and regulators desire with respect to regulatory compliance in general and banking marijuana in particular.

Mr. Gorin is also an adjunct law professor at Pepperdine University School of Law, as well as at the UCLA Speech and Communications Department. He is a graduate of UCLA School of Law.

4. David Schnider is a Partner at Nolan Heimann LLP and has over 15 years of experience specializing in intellectual property and licensing. Mr. Schnider helps his clients protect and monetize their copyrights and trademarks and efficiently resolve day-to-day legal issues. Mr. Schnider has worked with many companies in the cannabis industry to protect their brands and obtain trademark registrations.

His clients include, among others, software developers, consumer products companies, creative artists, fashion designers, and manufacturers. Recognizing the increasing need for companies in the cannabis industry to protect their brands, he has worked with growers, distributors, and service providers to understand the complicated federal and state registration system and to obtain registrations for their trademarks. Mr. Schnider has also helped Amazon sellers through the complicated process of protecting their trademarks on the Amazon marketplace and successfully gating their brand from unauthorized sellers.

5. John E.
