Clark Hill Receives First “Cannabis Law Firm of the Year” Emjay International Cannabis Award

December 4, 2023

At the inaugural Emjay International Cannabis Awards ceremony on Nov. 30, Clark Hill received the first-ever “Cannabis Law Firm of the Year” Emjay. The Emjay International Cannabis Awards are the cannabis industry’s international business awards that recognize the top ancillary businesses supporting the cannabis industry. The Emjays are a black-tie affair that honors the top accountants, attorneys, software companies, consultants, and other service-based categories.

“While recognition means a lot, what drives us is our focus and dedication to our clients and their pioneering tasks on a daily and weekly basis,” said Bob Hoban, Clark Hill’s cannabis industry group co-chair. “Groundbreaking entrepreneurs and clients require inventive legal counsel and advisory, and that’s what Clark Hill provides.”

Hoban and his fellow co-chair Sander Zagzebski, along with Xavier Jaillet, cannabis industry group coordinator, and Halston Trabucco, business development manager, accepted the award at MJBizCon in Las Vegas. The award is the second Clark Hill’s cannabis team has received this year. In September, Benzinga named the group “Cannabis Law Firm of the Year.” Clark Hill, one of seven firms nominated for the award, is proud to have taken home recognition as the top law firm serving the space.

“Our full-service, multidisciplinary cannabis group includes partner-level attorneys from each of our substantive practice areas and all of our firm’s major geographies,” Zagzebski said. “While many of our AmLaw ranked peers have experience in the industry, we think our cross-disciplinary collaboration and geographic diversity helped set us apart and contributed to our Chambers USA ranking, our award at the Benzinga conference, and now this award at MJBiz.”

The Emjay ceremony was part of the MJBiz Conference at the iconic Palms Hotel in Las Vegas. The conference featured top cannabis executives, influencers, and operators from around the world.
