Jenner & Block earned a spot among Law360’s “Cannabis Groups of the Year” as part of the publication’s “Practice Group of the Year” series for handling major litigation and transactions for the biggest industry players in North America. In a profile feature, Partners Stephen L. Ascher and Martin C. Glass, who co-lead the firm’s Cannabis Industry Group, discuss their work with Curaleaf and Aurora, including leading defenses against securities class actions, raising capital, and other financing deals. The profile also notes that the group advised cannabis company Green Thumb Industries' on its go-public registration with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, “a forward-looking move that will position the company to be ready for US exchanges when cannabis becomes federally legal in the US,” Mr. Glass said in the profile.

“I think it's quite clear cannabis is here to stay,” he added.
