He also actively advises on mergers and acquisitions and private equity, debt, venture capital and other financings. Mr. Feldman also represents investors, social media sites, public and private issuers and applicants for grow and dispensary licenses in the emerging cannabis and psychedelics sectors. In 2019 and 2020 the global guide Chambers & Partners ranked Mr. Feldman as one of the leading US attorney in cannabis law. In addition, the National Law Journal named him a “Cannabis Law Trailblazer” and Business Insider named him as a top lawyer in the cannabis industry.
