Habib is a corporate attorney with clients both in and outside of the cannabis industry. Habib advises his clients with choosing the appropriate entity structure for their business, structuring ownership, raising capital, drafting and negotiating contracts, joint ventures, strategic alliances and licensing agreements, due diligence, mergers and acquisitions, and regulatory compliance.

Habib regularly speaks at industry conferences and bar associations on the legal issues facing California’s cannabis industry. Habib received his J.D. and a certificate in International and Comparative Law from DePaul University in Chicago, where he was also named a Sullivan Fellow with the Human Rights Institute to study the legal regimes of Middle Eastern and North African countries.

Habib is a member of the Board of Directors of the Marin County Bar Association and the junior varsity assistant basketball coach at San Marin High School. In his free time, you can find Habib coaching his son's little league team, playing basketball in a recreational league (B league, no longer in A as his wife likes to regularly point out), and exploring beautiful Northern California with his family.
