Boston law firm Foley Hoag sees the newly legal pot market as good for business opening a practice group targeting the marijuana industry.

It is understood Foley Hoag already has clients in the sector - Massachusetts medical-marijuana clients - and provides expertise sifting through state regulations and brokering with agencies where they plan to do business.

The company believes that there is good business to be had helping dispensaries set up shop in Boston.

Pot team

The pot team will include Kevin Conroy, a former Massachusetts Deputy Attorney General. Colleague at the wider firm, ex-Attorney General, Martha Coakley, will also be made available to assist clients.

Other members of the new group include counsel Chris Feudo, an employment lawyer, and two associates.
