Lowndes attorney Tara Tedrow was recently featured in the Alumni Spotlight of the Spring 2021 edition of the Florida Law Review Alumni Newsletter. Tedrow was recognized for being a leader in Florida Cannabis Law and teaching one of the best compressed courses at the University of Florida Levin College of Law.
Tedrow is a shareholder in the law firm’s Real Estate Transactions, Development, Land Use, Zoning & Environmental practices and serves as Chair of the Cannabis and Controlled Substances Group. She focuses her practice on land use and development, advising clients statewide on entitlement projects for commercial, residential, industrial, office and mixed uses. Tedrow also devotes a substantial portion of her practice on complex and highly regulated industries such as alcoholic beverage, hemp and marijuana licensing.
A frequent presenter and speaker at industry seminars and conferences, Tedrow was the first professor in the state of Florida to teach a law school course on marijuana law and policy at the University of Florida Levin College of Law. She is the only person in the state to be appointed by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to both the inaugural Industrial Hemp Advisory Council created under Senate Bill 1020 and to the state’s Hemp Advisory Committee, which she chairs.
Tedrow received her law degree from the University of Florida Levin College of Law and her undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University.
