Vicente LLP Leads the Rankings in Cannabis and Psychedelics Law in Chambers USA 2024 Guide

Jun 6, 2024

Vicente LLP is thrilled to announce that we are the first—and only—law firm to be ranked by Chambers USA in the top tier for both cannabis and psychedelics law, further cementing our position as the unquestioned leader in drug law and policy.

The 2024 edition of the prestigious legal directory notes that “Vicente is one of the country’s few law firms specializing in providing advice to businesses operating in the cannabis sector.” Vicente has received a Nationwide Band 1 ranking from Chambers every year since the Cannabis Law section was added in 2019. Chambers introduced the Psychedelics Law section this year, and Vicente is at the front of the pack in that category as well.

“Much like our clients, Vicente LLP is a dedicated trailblazer in cutting-edge areas of law and policy,” said Vicente LLP founding partner Brian Vicente. “Having played an important role in establishing cannabis legalization, our firm is now pushing the envelope again in the emerging area of psychedelics law, and we are thrilled to be acknowledged by Chambers in both fields.”

Client feedback featured in the Chambers USA 2024 guide highlights the firm’s strengths:

"[Vicente] has a robust team in place who can handle everything. It's one of the best law firms I have ever worked with."

"The team is incredibly responsive and provides super high service levels."

In addition to a Nationwide Band 1 firm ranking, five of the firm’s attorneys were individually ranked among the nation’s top lawyers in cannabis law and psychedelics law. Vicente LLP founding partner Brian Vicente is once again in Band 1 in cannabis law, with partner Charles Alovisetti rising in the ranks to join him in Band 1 this year. Partner Shawn Hauser is at the top of the field with a new Band 1 ranking in psychedelics law, while raising her cannabis law position to Band 3. Partner Cassia Furman and special counsel Christian Sederberg maintained their Band 4 and Band 1 rankings in cannabis law, respectively.
