Job Description:

Vicente Sederberg LLP is not just a law firm that decided to jump into the cannabis space. We are a cannabis law firm, and we have been at the leading edge of cannabis law and policy since the inception of the regulated cannabis industry. We do not just help clients navigate cannabis and hemp laws and regulations - we help shape those policies, and we have an unparalleled track record of advancing the legal cannabis industry dynamically and responsibly. As Rolling Stone magazine put it, Vicente Sederberg LLP is "the country's first powerhouse marijuana law firm."

Our firm and many of our team members are widely recognized as leaders in cannabis law and policy. Vicente Sederberg LLP is ranked a Band 1 law firm by Chambers and Partners USA in its "Nationwide: Cannabis Law" practice category, and three of the firm's partners are individually ranked. Five of our team members were included in the National Law Journal's annual list of "Cannabis Law Trailblazers" in the first two years it was published, and Business Insider named Vicente Sederberg LLP one of "the top 7 law firms in cannabis, according to investors, startups, and major companies in the booming industry." We were also included in the 2020 list of "Top Cannabis Law Firms" compiled by the Green Market Report and Cannabis Law Report. Our firm serves local, state, federal, and foreign governments in drafting legislation and regulations.

This position provides administrative support with a variety of clerical activities and related tasks. Applicants for this dynamic and exciting position should have an interest in marijuana policy reform and will provide support to our fast-growing team.

We offer competitive salaries and a comprehensive benefits package including Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance coverages 100% employer-sponsored for all full-time employees and their dependents. Life, AD&D, Short Term, and Long-Term Disability Insurance coverages are 100% employer-sponsored for all full-time employees as well. We also offer a 401k with a 4% company match, generous paid time off, and paid parental leave.

We are a team that values diversity, equity, and inclusion. We warmly welcome individuals to our team from all different backgrounds and promote an accepting culture and environment. We especially strive to include those who have been historically disadvantaged.
