Rosenberg, as an attorney with the Colorado Department of Law, helped draft all regulations adopted by the Marijuana Enforcement Division
DENVER, CO – Vicente Sederberg LLC today announced that Kelly Rosenberg, a former attorney with the Colorado Department of Law, has joined the marijuana-focused law firm. Ms. Rosenberg has been central to the Colorado Department of Revenue’s efforts to regulate marijuana since the Department embarked on the groundbreaking work in 2010.
As an attorney with the Colorado Department of Law, Kelly was assigned as the general and litigation counsel to the Colorado Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division (“MMED”) in 2010. There, she played a key role in the MMED’s early work to craft its regulatory structure. In 2013, she became an even more integral part of the regulatory development process at the Marijuana Enforcement Division (“MED”). At the MED, Ms. Rosenberg worked on a five-person team that drafted, edited, and reviewed all rules adopted by the agency. In addition, she provided day-to-day legal counsel to the MED on a variety of matters including open records, requests for positions statements, subpoenas, policies, procedures, contracts, employment issues, and trademark concerns, and presided as general counsel over all of the MED’s emergency and permanent rule making processes.
At Vicente Sederberg, Ms. Rosenberg will assist clients with regulatory and compliance issues as well as administrative matters, including administrative defense. She will also be a key member of the firm’s new government consulting division, which assists governmental entities in the process of drafting medical and retail marijuana laws, ordinances, and regulations.
“We could not be more excited about Kelly joining our firm,” said Brian Vicente, managing partner at Vicente Sederberg. “At Vicente Sederberg, our primary mission is to help our clients comply with existing laws and regulations. Given Kelly’s experience in drafting and interpreting the broad range of regulations in Colorado, she is uniquely positioned to provide our clients invaluable insight and guidance.
“The experience and skills Kelly brings to the table are virtually unmatched,” Vicente continued. “In fact, as an avid soccer fan, I would say that Kelly is like the Lionel Messi of marijuana regulation. With her ability to assist, our clients will undoubtedly achieve their goals.”
