HMB Legal Counsel


David is a partner in HMB’s Litigation Group. He represents entrepreneurs, investors and business owners in the cannabis industry. He also represents companies facing business and tax litigation and provides general counsel representation for privately-held companies.

For clients in the cannabis industry and other emerging industries, David helps clients navigate unsettled and differing statutes, regulations and industry-specific legal developments, including where inconsistencies exist between state and federal law. David enjoys guiding clients through the regulatory maze for state licensing of cannabis businesses and counseling on the issues, some new and some common, during the course of the company’s life through sale and beyond.

Known as an excellent listener, David’s approach is time-efficient and focused on getting to the client’s business goal. He handles a range of issues, including whistleblower (qui tam) and False Claims Act defense, partnership and ownership disputes, contract disputes and business torts and the array of issues being litigated in the cannabis industry.

David also has particularly deep experience handling multistate tax matters. He represents clients before state courts and administrative tax tribunals across the country, litigates in appellate and federal courts and facilitates audit disputes and informal dispute resolutions nationwide.
