Adam R. Dolan, co-chair of Goldberg Segalla’s Cannabis and Hemp Law group, will be speaking at Insurance Business America’s Cannabis Cover Masterclass in Boston on June 10 about product liability issues and spotlight solutions best-suited to protect cannabis clients.
Adam was quoted in an article for Insurance Business discussing how businesses can prepare for a potential lawsuit, including ensuring quality control is high and regulations are being strictly followed, having risk management professionals understand exactly what their clients are doing within this industry, and being aware of daily operations.
“Make sure that you have the requirements for each day you operated and make sure that you had those next to your manufacturing people. Make sure that they followed it and make sure that they detailed that they followed it so that if a lawsuit comes down the line, you can point to all of this information and data and show, ‘my product was required to do X, Y and Z and it did X, Y and Z, and then we did A, B and C,’” Adam said, “because there are so many different allegations that can be brought in a product liability lawsuit. They can make 10 or 20 allegations against you and you need to be aware of how to protect yourself against them.”
