The voice of experience in a youthful industry.

Since 2010, Husch Blackwell has helped clients leverage opportunities in the state legal cannabis industry in Colorado. Our team now 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.

The vast experience of our team in Colorado and California is a valuable resource for our cannabis clients, including medical and retail centers and cultivators, manufacturers of infused products, testing facilities, marijuana technology companies, landlords, private equity funds, credit unions and security companies.

As federal legalization of industrial hemp moves closer to reality, we are poised to meet the challenges of this emerging industry as well.

Testimonials Wade Shafer, American Simmental Association

“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.”
