Anuj is a strategic business advisor with 15 years’ experience working with a broad range of organisations from start-ups to SMEs and large corporates, predominantly in the digital/entertainment/media industries, both as a lawyer and a commercial lead. Anuj loves working with entrepreneurs to get under the skin of a business, to really see what makes it tick. This allows Anuj to fully understand a company’s commercial and operational needs, so he can provide the right level of pragmatic and strategic advice to suit their objectives.

Anuj has developed, and continues to expand, an extensive network in the cannabis, CBD and hemp sectors, both in the UK and internationally. And through hosting Europe’s leading cannabis industry podcast, he has developed an amazing insight into these emerging industries, as well as helping change the perceptions of this fascinating and misunderstood plant. He is helping clients in this nascent sector in a variety of areas, including commercial contracts and corporate matters.

Useful to know:

In addition to Anuj’s weekly podcast ‘The Cannabis Conversation’ (you can check it out here) he loves cooking and Italian wine (who doesn’t!).

He was also a senior member of the Commercial and Content Partnerships team at TalkTalk and has worked with BBC and HMV.
