DENVER, CO—Akerman LLP, a top 100 U.S. law firm, has expanded the national footprint of its Litigation Practice Group with the addition of Adam Massaro in Denver. Joining from Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie, Massaro brings with him valuable first-chair trial experience in complex business litigation and provides important business counsel to clients internationally.

He represents clients in the cannabis industry in both state and federal court, including obtaining a complete defense win at trial for a client, obtaining injunctive relief for a plant-touching entity, and enforcing Cannabis intellectual property rights. He works with clients on intellectual property matters in a broad range of areas, including software, internet-based technologies, industrial equipment, and sporting goods. He has litigated intellectual property and high technology cases in Colorado, California, Nevada, and Arizona federal district court.
