Cannabis Law (Hemp and CBD)

Following recent changes to federal and state law, the cultivation, processing, and sale of hemp and hemp derivatives including cannabidiol (CBD) and other cannabinoids are now legal in North Carolina and in many other states. As businesses seek to take advantage of this exciting new industry, they must navigate a complex series of federal and state statutes and agency regulations. It is crucial to have experienced legal counsel to stay informed of the evolving legal landscape in order to avoid costly civil penalties and criminal consequences. 

Gaming Law

The laws concerning electronic sweepstakes, skill-based contests, and video gaming machines can be confusing and consequences for violations are serious. Business that fail to comply with applicable statutes can be shut down by law enforcement and risk forfeiture of assets and property linked with illegal gambling activity. Dysart Willis represents businesses involved in all aspects of the electronic gaming industry to help ensure compliance with the law. Our attorneys are familiar with the ever changing interface formats and software modifications that can sometimes mean the difference in legitimate gaming and illegal gambling. Our work has included:

  • Defense of state and federal criminal charges for gaming violations
  • Issuing cease and desist warnings and demands to industry competitors engaged in illegal or impermissible conduct
  • Navigating banking regulations on behalf of gaming clients
  • Negotiation of non-prosecution agreements
  • Obtaining gaming licenses/certifications through applicable state agencies
  • Seeking the return of gaming property and assets seized by state agencies
