Riker Danzig Cannabis Law Partners Quoted in ROI-NJ story
Apr 10, 2018

Riker Danzig partners Jason Navarino and Zahid Quraishi were quoted in the April 10, 2018  ROI-NJ article, “Riker Danzig Feels It Has Every Issue of Cannabis Covered With ‘New’ Practice Group.”  The article discusses that, although the announcement of the Firm’s Cannabis Law Group was made recently, Riker Danzig has been doing work in this area for quite some time.

The group is led by three partners, each from a different relevant practice area of law: Jason Navarino, Corporate and Tax; Zahid Quraishi, White Collar Criminal Defense and Investigations; and Mary Kay Roberts, Governmental Affairs.  The article mentions, “Having three leaders from three different areas is by design — and one of the reasons Riker feels its group has an advantage over others in the space.”

Za Quraishi mentions, “The cannabis law group is really being headed up by three separate practice groups working together for a host of reasons that make sense.” He adds, “There are different areas that we need to handle in this space. It’s not all about the controlled substance act or what’s a violation of law. There are corporate issues, business issues and (there are) obviously legislative issues that we’re dealing with.”

Partner Jason Navarino commented, “That’s how we work at Riker.  We find it most effective to pull in the practitioners who have the right expertise, rather than each person trying to do everything themselves.”
