Eric Walter, a partner in Armstrong Teasdale’s Cannabis and Hemp Law practice, has been recognized by the National Law Journal as a 2022 Cannabis Law Trailblazer. The Trailblazer series is a special feature spotlighting professionals who are agents of change in their respective practice areas.
A significant portion of Walter’s practice involves representing businesses and individuals in the legalized cannabis industry. He has successfully represented companies applying for state licenses to cultivate and dispense medical cannabis and its byproducts. In this area, he advises clients on state and federal regulations governing not only the operation of legalized cannabis businesses, but also the solicitation of and contracting with investors and other business partners. In addition, he assisted in the organization of MoCannTrade, Missouri’s leading industry trade association, and continues to serve as its outside general counsel.
