Robert T. Hoban
Robert Hoban sits at the center of the world’s largest commercial cannabis industry network. As the cannabis industry commercialized, Bob was widely credited for creating the class of lawyers now known as “cannabis attorneys.” He has truly transcended the practice of law and is regularly involved in assembling and structuring large-scale cannabis industry M&A transactions. Above all else, Bob is a cannabis industry expert.
Since 2008, Bob deliberately constructed the Hoban Law Group (HLG) to become the world’s leading full-service commercial cannabis industry law firm. For more than a decade, HLG represented the cannabis industry’s titans in every aspect of the commercial cannabis industry around the world. In June of 2021, HLG was acquired by international law firm, Clark Hill. Bob joined Clark Hill as a Member, Member-in-Charge of Clark Hill’s new Denver Office, and the Co-Leader of its Cannabis Industry Practice Group.
From 2010-2016, Bob served as one of the Nation’s first cannabis policy instructors at the University of Denver, where he regularly lectured regarding cannabis topics, and led a University-sanctioned research practicum concerning the efficacy of marijuana regulation. Given this academic background, Bob has been asked to work with the governments of more than thirty countries on crafting commercial cannabis public policy.
