PIVOT PHARMA ENGAGES HARRIS BRICKEN LLP FOR CALIFORNIA CANNABIS COMPLIANCE SERVICES
Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. has retained law firm Harris Bricken LLP to provide the company with legal planning, regulatory support, corporate guidance and compliance strategies for the U.S. cannabis market. Harris Bricken is an international law firm with lawyers in Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, Barcelona and Beijing. Harris Bricken's cannabis attorneys are recognized national leaders at the forefront of the cannabis industry.
Pivot's wholly owned U.S. subsidiary, Pivot Naturals LLC, based in Costa Mesa, Calif., was granted a temporary manufacturing Type N infusion licence by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) in November, 2018, and a temporary transport-only distribution licence from the Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) in December, 2018. Harris Bricken will assist Pivot through the final process required to secure annual manufacturing and transport-only distribution licences for Pivot Naturals. Pivot's board of directors continues to submit all required information to the BCC and the CDPH. In addition, the company's former chairman, Ahmad Doroudian, will also be added to the licences due to his aggregate share ownership interest exceeding 5 per cent.
Patrick Frankham, Pivot's chief executive officer, commented: "We welcome Harris Bricken to the Pivot team to help navigate the cannabis regulations in California. As we prepare to commercialize our products in the U.S., Harris Bricken's advice and guidance will be invaluable to our board of directors."
