Here’s their press release
Husch Blackwell’s Cannabis Group is thrilled to announce their expanded presence in the Northeast. This expansion into Boston coincides with a strong year for the cannabis team. In June 2021, Chambers USA cited the team’s cross-disciplinary approach that utilizes its well-established base in regulatory compliance to advise on a range of transactions and business structuring matters. The team was also recognized by Legal 500, saying that the practice is well regarded for its experience with cannabis in multiple states as well as its impressive connectivity to regulators.
With the additions of Andrew Levine, Sean Ryan and Steve Tringale to the Cannabis group, the team can better serve their clients in the Northeast. The trio brings decades of regulatory experience, making them uniquely suited to serve New England’s expanding cannabis industry.
“I’m extremely excited to have Andrew, Sean and Steve join our Cannabis group. We’ve been a truly national marijuana practice for years,” said Husch Blackwell partner Marshall Custer, who co-leads the firm’s cannabis group. “But admittedly our bench in the Northeast has lagged a little behind the assets we have in the Midwest and West Coast. Both on personality and capability, Andrew, Sean and Steve are a great fit and I’m looking forward to working with them.”
