Legal publication names Plunkett Cooney attorney a ‘Go-To’ cannabis lawyer

When you think about cannabis law in Michigan, the state’s top legal news publication wants attorney Jeffrey Schroder of Plunkett Cooney to come to mind. 

That’s why Schroder was recently named by Michigan Lawyers Weekly to its 2024 list of Go To Law­yers for Cannabis Law in Michigan. The publication’s Go To Law­yers program recognizes top lawyers around the state in given practice areas. Honorees will be profiled in a special section of the newspaper’s July 30 print and digital editions.

“Working in the state’s cannabis industry has been very interesting. In many ways, I’ve been a part of the industry’s evolution, which of course, comes with a lot of legal and regulatory challenges,” said Schroder, who helped co-found Plunkett Cooney’s Cannabis Industry Group. “We represent cannabis clients across the state who are working hard every day to ensure their own profitability and the industry’s long-term viability.”

A former Michigan assistant attorney general and assistant city attorney in Warren, Schroder provides a unique blend of expertise to clients seeking to secure and renew cannabis business licenses, to purchase land and facilities for operations and to remain compliant with the state’s complex regulatory requirements.

Schroder is also called upon for counsel and advice by municipalities throughout the state that are considering whether to opt-in on allowing recreational cannabis businesses to operate within
their jurisdictions. He has additional expertise assisting with the preparation of ballot proposals by groups seeking to prompt local officials to allow recreational cannabis businesses to operate within their communities, and he works alongside public officials to create cannabis business licensing processes, procedures and regulatory frame­works in compliance with state requirements.
