Tyler J. Russell and Alan N. Trask, III, co-chair Ward and Smith’s Hemp Law practice group. Their clients include farmers and growers, processors, extractors, product manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and retailers. They also assist clients who are involved in the industry but do not directly “touch the plant”—including brokers, consultants, marketing agencies, lenders and financial institutions, and other suppliers and vendors.
The Ward and Smith team regularly provides advice and counsel to his clients on Federal, state, and local legal and regulatory compliance matters, and represents clients in all types of agribusiness, transactional, and corporate deals and agreements within the industry. They are also engaged in state-level lobbying and public activism efforts in support of the industry, its companies, and their products.
The hemp and CBD industries are unique, and Ward and Smith’s Hemp Law team are committed to helping the people and businesses within them.
