Jul 6, 2022
Vicente Sederberg LLP is excited to announce that the firm was once again recognized by Chambers and Partners as a top cannabis law practice in the U.S., and five of the firm's partners were individually ranked among the nation's top cannabis attorneys. VS has received a Nationwide Band 1 ranking from Chambers in all four years since the Cannabis Law section was added.
In May, VS received the award for "Cannabis Law Firm of the Year" for the second straight year at the Chambers USA Awards. The impressive field of nominees up for this year's award included Dentons, Duane Morris LLP, Foley Hoag LLP, and Fox Rothschild LLP.
The Chambers Awards cited VS's "impressive range of work throughout the past year" and noted "the team is widely respected throughout the market." It also highlighted the following quote from an interviewee: "They're prolific across the US. They are one of the leading firms because of the number of transactions they do and the level of professionalism and sophistication with which they approach transactions."
Chambers is highly respected among legal professionals and business leaders for its deep analysis of law firms and attorneys across industries and across the globe. It has a team of more than 200 researchers who conduct thousands of interviews and other forms of independent research to assess technical legal ability; client service; commercial vision and business understanding; diligence; value for fees; and depth of experience.
The 2022 edition of the prestigious legal directory gave VS a Nationwide Band 1 ranking in its Cannabis Law section, with the editors noting the firm is known for being "one of the country's few law firms specializing in providing advice to businesses operating in the cannabis sector."
Chambers highlighted the following interviewee comments as examples of the firm's strengths:
"I am always pleased with the level of service I receive from the firm. They are on the cutting edge of the industry and always in the know about changes on the horizon."
"Vicente Sederberg has never backed away from any matter involving complex cannabis regulatory issues. The firm is well known and respected among regulators."
"The attorneys provide very thoughtful advice; they are hard-working and focused on making things as easy as possible for us."
VS founding partner Brian Vicente was once again ranked in Band 1 of Chambers' individual rankings, while founding partner Christian Sederberg's ranking climbed from Band 2 up to Band 1. Partners Charles Alovisetti and Cassia Furman were once again ranked in Band 2 and Band 3, respectively, and partner Shawn Hauser ranked as Up and Coming.
According to Chambers:

Cassia Furman is particularly strong in guiding cannabis businesses through the framework of industry-specific regulations at the state and federal level.
Charles Alovisetti's practice focuses on the regulations affecting cannabis businesses, including those engaging in cross-border M&A.
