Our cannabis regulatory lawyers are ready to discuss rules and their implications on current and future cannabis, marijuana and hemp businesses.

For nearly a decade, Husch Blackwell has helped clients leverage opportunities in the state legal cannabis industry. Our team counsels clients on a variety of transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings (public and private), debt and equity financings, and corporate restructuring. We also advise on federal and state regulation, intellectual property, tax, employment and other general corporate issues.

Our national legal team served the first regulated cannabis markets of Colorado, then California, from the outset. The experience of our cannabis law practice is a valuable resource for all our cannabis clients. Our cannabis lawyers counsel medical and retail centers and cultivators, manufacturers of infused products, testing facilities, marijuana technology companies, landlords, private equity funds, credit unions and security companies.

Members of the Husch Blackwell team have helped clients navigate the complex and ever-changing regulations governing the state legal cultivation and sale of marijuana, industrial hemp and cannabidiol (CBD). Additionally, the entire firm serves as a resource when the team is dealing with highly complex and novel legal issues on behalf of cannabis clients.

“When we were blindsided by a patent infringement lawsuit that could have put us out of business if found meritorious, we turned to our trusted legal advisors at Husch Blackwell. The team truly delivered. Their decisive action and novel approach to our situation resulted in dismissal of the lawsuit and an order from the USPTO invalidating every claim of the asserted patents.”
