Andrew Glassman, chair of the Cannabis, CBD and Hemp practice at Pullman & Comley, has been named 2022 Attorney of the Year by the Connecticut Cannabis Chamber of Commerce. Glassman was recognized at the sold-out “Together We Grow 2022” event on Dec. 7 at the Hartford Club.
“Thank you so much for your time, your hard work, and for continuing with us on this journey,” CT Cannabis Chamber co-founder Deborah A. Caviness said to Glassman as she presented him with the award.
Glassman and the Cannabis attorney team at Pullman & Comley have guided and continue to advise dozens of cannabis businesses and entrepreneurs through the licensure process since Connecticut announced the legalization of adult use in 2021.
“There is so much variety in this new chapter of the cannabis industry,” says Glassman. “It is fascinating to work with established multi-state operators as well as social equity parties who have obtained licenses in Connecticut. I look forward to seeing the adult-use market in Connecticut launch in January and be fully up and running by the end of 2023.”
Cannabis is a long-established part of Glassman’s business law practice. When medical use was first legalized in Connecticut in 2012, he provided legal support to clients who obtained the very first cannabis licenses in the state.
“Pullman & Comley has been at the forefront of representing the cannabis industry and social equity clients,” says Connecticut Cannabis Chamber of Commerce president Adam Wood. “Attorney Glassman has been a pioneer in his advocacy on behalf of Connecticut’s newest businesses. The firm deserves enormous credit for its thought leadership on social equity policy and representation.”
