Chris Lynch’s investment in the cannabis industry is just as personal as it is professional. Chris, after watching both family and friends turn to medicinal cannabis to treat cancer and other maladies, committed his legal career to ensuring that cannabis would remain safe, protected, and available for those that needed it. Chris has galvanized his passion into steadfast dedication to his work for NWMJ Law and for the firm’s clients.
Before becoming an Associate with NWMJ Law, Chris was devoted to researching packaging, labeling, and advertising practices in the cannabis industry, and presented his research to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board. Chris also worked with the Regulatory Enforcement and Economic Justice Section of the Seattle City Attorney’s Office, where he helped contribute to robust and comprehensive administration of cannabis issues within the City of Seattle. At NWMJ Law, Chris’ practice areas are primarily focused on contracts, regulatory compliance, license application, land use and corporate transactions.
