Cannabis Advisory in Colorado
Hoban Law Corporate Office, 730 17th Street, Suite 420, Denver, 80202
Hoban Law Group is the first U.S. based law firm to expand its cannabis industry services across the globe with attorneys in the European Union, Latin America, and beyond. With these resources, HLG builds out client portfolios within the global cannabis economy.
As a Global Cannabusiness Leader since 2009, HLG has been providing professional services to the cannabis industry, which is comprised of the international hemp and regulated marijuana marketplace.
We have gained international distinction for providing elite cannabis industry consulting and full-service legal solutions for our international clientele.
Approximately half of our business flows from the industrial hemp side of the industry, and the other half from the regulated marijuana marketplace. These two sides of the industry present a different challenge and require unique legal expertise.
This has caused HLG to pivot and build out a team of experienced attorneys to handle each segment’s distinct legal needs.
What Makes Us Different
With the depth of our industry experience, cutting edge business structure and team approach, we can provide the lowest billing rate to achieve the efficient goal of providing clients with high-quality professional services.
HLG has a distinct combination of legal skills and business acumen, to help our clients succeed in the extremely competitive global cannabis marketplace.
Because what we do is unique, we coined the term “cannabusiness” to aptly describe our practice. And because of what we do, who we are, and who we represent, HLG’s network is truly the largest cannabis industry network in the world.
As a result, we have been working with the industry’s leading brands, companies, and ancillary players for over a decade.
