Cannabis Firm Hoban Law Sets Sights Abroad

Hoban Law Group, a Denver-based firm focused on advising the emerging legal and medical cannabis industry, has announced plans to expand internationally, saying it would open four European and two Latin American offices by spring 2018.

Pointing to a rapidly evolving marketplace for its clients in the regulated marijuana dispensary and industrial hemp spaces, Hoban Law—which has 34 lawyers and dubs itself a “cannabusiness” law firm—laid out the expansion plans in a statement on Monday.

The firm said it has worked internationally for several years in roles that include advising international governments on cannabis policy and working on cross-border business deals in the cannabis sector.

“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 firm managing partner Robert Hoban. “We have accepted the challenge of being global cannabis industry leaders and experts and will work with strategic partners … to move the industry forward across six countries.”
