Mr. Pitchford and Mr. Page will attend to meet with industry professionals and keep current on the latest industry trends, including legal developments, craft brewing distribution and business issues, and evolving beer styles. For example, this year’s Summit seminars include the cutting-edge topic of brewing, selling, and advertising products with cannabis-derived ingredients such as hemp and cannabidiol (CBD) oil, creative uses of ABC licenses, updates on the Tax and Trade Bureau’s guidelines and requirements, and discussions on the changing and more competitive retail environment in California.
Conkle, Kremer & Engel brings its decades of experience to bear on a number of beer industry-specific issues, such as brand protection and intellectual property, distribution and vendor relations, state and federal regulatory issues, advertising and labeling, employment law, and litigation and alternative dispute resolution in state and federal courts. If you’re an industry professional or craft beer-related business who will be at the California Craft Beer Summit and would like to connect with Mr. Pitchford and Mr. Page before, during or after the event, please contact them at [email protected] and [email protected]. They would be happy to arrange free initial discussions about particular issues you may be facing.
