Kiliaen has represented cultivators, dispensaries, manufacturers, wholesalers, CBD start-ups and retailers, and research and policy organizations. Kiliaen’s regulatory and compliance practice within the life sciences and organ and tissue donation industries has involved working with tissue banks, eye banks, non-transplant anatomical banks, donor registries, medical education and research entities, and organ procurement organizations.
