Eric Berlin

Jones Day 

Eric P. Berlin is one of the nation’s leading cannabis law attorneys, advocating full-time for clients in or impacted by the state-legal cannabis industries and tensions with federal law. Following two decades of trial and courtroom experience in high-stakes litigation, he now counsels clients in the cannabis industry to reach their business objectives while avoiding legal risks in this ever-evolving regulatory environment.

With other colleagues, he provides counseling and compliance advice for clients on issues related to state and federal law, employment considerations, intellectual property, litigation avoidance, and transactional work.

Eric worked with members of state general assemblies and other stakeholders to help create the Illinois medical program (2009-2014) and to draft and help get passed the Ohio bill (2016).

Current clients include large publicly traded companies selling products or services into the cannabis industry, companies involved in financing the industry, vaporizer manufacturers, health care institutions, testing labs, cultivators, processors, and a company operating dispensaries in several states.

Additionally, Eric has represented clients in some of the nation’s highest profile health care and antitrust litigations. Victories include a trial in a $2.3 billion Sherman Act and the Robinson-Patman Act case; a False Claims Act case against major pharmacies; a bundling antitrust case against a large medical distributor; an international arbitration between agricultural companies; and appeals in the 6th, 7th, 9th, and 10th U.S. Courts of Appeals.

Eric currently serves as the president of board of directors for the University of Chicago GI Research Foundation and a director for the Better Government Association in Chicago.
