We enjoyed visiting with old friends and meeting new ones at the IPCPR conference and trade show in Las Vegas.
From our perspective, the talk of the show was FDA’s looming regulation of cigars. During the conference, Troutman Sanders participated in a legislative session on the potential for FDA regulation of cigars. FDA has stated that it intends to regulate cigars and other tobacco products by October of this year. However, the agency has already missed previous self-imposed deadlines. Troutman Sanders is working closely in conjunction with stakeholders to educate FDA regarding the pitfalls of regulating the premium cigar industry.
Stay tuned — if and when FDA issues the regulations, our practice will report on how the regulations may affect your business.

Members of the Troutman Sanders Tobacco practice will attend the 81st International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Association Annual Convention & International Trade from July 13-17 in Las Vegas, NV. Our Troutman Sanders’ Tobacco practice believes it is vital, as tobacco lawyers, to stay connected with the companies and experts of the industry as well as to stay up-to-date on the issues and concerns coming directly from the people in the tobacco industry. With that said, we value the unique opportunity to attend the IPCPR show in an effort to provide your business with the best legal advice possible.
If you plan to attend the show, we will be present at the Smokeshop Magazine booth and we look forward to seeing you there.
If you are unable to attend, we will provide a takeaway blog entry next week on our Tobacco Law Blog.
