Hoban Law Group, a full-time, full-service cannabis industry law firm based in Colorado, is planning to expand internationally with multiple offices in the European Union and two offices in Latin America. The European offices are expected by late fall while the Latin America offices are expected by spring 2018.
The firm has already been working internationally for several years; advising governments on cannabis policy and facilitating international business transactions. The new offices will deal with regulatory law, equity placement, worldwide trade, merger and acquisition transactions, and structured finance.
“HLG steps in to global markets quickly as our direct work with government officials on policy and regulation has kept us in this important global curve,” said Managing Partner Robert Hoban in a press release. “We have accepted the challenge of being global cannabis industry leaders & experts and will work with strategic partners, such as New Frontier Data, to move the industry forward across six countries.”
In 2010, the firm became Colorado’s first cannabis industry-focused law firm, and the first in the nation in 2013. The group currently has attorneys in every state and territory where legalization has occurred.
In August, Hoban Law unveiled the first national TV commercial that uses the word “cannabis” on CNN, Fox News, Fox Business, MSNBC, Headline News, and Viceland.
