The state’s top legal news publication, Michigan Lawyers Weekly, has put Jeffrey Schroder of Plunkett Cooney in Boomfield Hills on 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,” says Schroder, who helped co-found Plunkett Cooney’s Cannabis Industry Group.” 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. 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 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 also is 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.

Plunkett Cooney’s Cannabis Industry Group includes a multi-disciplinary group of attorneys who provide a range of services, including administrative law, appellate law, banking law, business litigation, corporate formation, contracts, environmental law, labor and employment law, local government relations, licensing, real estate transactions, regulatory compliance, and tax law.
