Ryan Agnew’s practice is primarily dedicated to adult-use and medical cannabis businesses, with a focus on compliance and corporate counsel.
Clients include large and medium-scale cultivators and processors, as well as licensed retailers. Ryan also represents ancillary companies in extraction and distillation technology.
For businesses having issues with state and local government, Ryan believes a fair and expedient solution is best. When government stops working for the people they are supposed to serve, Ryan remains ready to hold public oﬃcials accountable through litigation.
He is also a certiﬁed mediator, a presenter on ethics and federal/state conﬂicts in cannabis law, and speaks regularly at cannabis conventions and trade shows.
Ryan is a resident of Bentonville, Arkansas, along with his wife and two children. When not in the oﬃce, attending conferences or spending time with family, Ryan can be found working on cars.
Ryan is a member of the International Cannabis Bar Association and the Cannabis Alliance of Washington State. Membership projects include: petitions for rule-making, establishing an agricultural commodity commission, expungement of cannabis-related misdemeanors, and drafting legislation to protect cultivators and processors from nuisance lawsuits and clean-air agency violations.
