CBD & Industrial Hemp

Highly skilled attorneys in a highly regulated area.

Following passage of the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, there are new fields of opportunity for growers, manufacturers and investors in the industrial hemp and CBD industry; however, it is still a highly regulated area of operation, owing to its historical association with marijuana. Our experienced team stands ready to help industry participants adapt to changes in federal law, as well as the patchwork of state-level laws applicable to the cultivation and production of industrial hemp and related products.

Our dedicated team provides the full complement of services to CBD and industrial hemp producers and retailers from the earliest startup stages through ongoing business concerns. Because our team is industry-focused rather than practice-specific, we are widely regarded as thought leaders and regularly publish, speak and advocate for favorable legislation on behalf of our clients.
