London firm cultivating groundbreaking cannabis law practice

A London law firm is building what it says is the country’s first dedicated cannabis law practice as it looks to take the lead in a fast-growing market.

Mackrell Turner Garrett is following the example of law firms in the US – where there is even a National Cannabis Bar Association – and said American and Canadian companies were actively looking to invest in the UK.


In late 2017, we reported on US cannabis law firm Hoban Law Group’s international expansion, with London on its radar. It has since opened offices in Amsterdam and Warsaw, but has yet to come to the UK.

Mr Jappie said Hoban was “partly the inspiration for what we’re doing here”.
