Ben Pirie has joined Lane Powell as an Associate on the Cannabis Team.

Pirie counsels cannabis businesses on a wide range of corporate needs. He is passionate about building long-lasting relationships with clients as they reach toward their goals in one of the most dynamic and fraught industries in the world.

Pirie brings his experience as in-house counsel to a Fortune 1000 company in Portland to bear on Oregon’s emerging cannabis industry, where he advises clients on business transactions, contracts, entity formation and management, securities compliance, corporate governance, intellectual property, mergers and acquisitions, state and local administrative law, and employment matters.

Results oriented and responsive, Pirie has helped clients from labs to retailers on their terms and timelines to get and keep every type of recreational-marijuana license from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. In addition to advising clients, Pirie is active in engaging with state and local governments in order to ensure common sense, business-friendly regulation of the marijuana industry.

Pirie received his J.D. from Lewis & Clark Law School and his B.A. in Art History and Chemistry from Duke University.
