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.

The Compliance Program Coordinator will be responsible for supporting compliance-related programs and projects. The role will consist primarily of non-billable program development activities, including organization and standardization of compliance materials, initial development of marketing materials, and general administrative tasks. The unique role is designed for an administrative professional with an interest in learning more about cannabis compliance and scaling their work to support clients in the industry.

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.
