Khurshid Khoja — Greenbridge Corporate Counsel
Join NCIA Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Committee Chair Khadijah Adams, and her rotating cast of co-hosts, each week for an update on the policies, practices, and some of the chatter effecting minority ownership and executive leadership in the growing cannabis industry. Laws & regulations need to be designed and implemented with equity and fairness in mind. The NCIA’s DEIC is focused on recommendations that will create access to opportunity for those most adversely affected by cannabis prohibition.
Khadijah is joined this week by her co-host Alexis Olive – of OliveYou Media – and Khurshid Khoja.
Khurshid Khoja is Principal of Greenbridge Corporate Counsel, a business law firm founded in 2012, which represents clientele in the cannabis industry—including social equity ventures, small businesses, as well as several publicly-traded multistate operators—on regulatory, licensing, start‐up, corporate, intellectual property, finance, and other transactional matters.
Khurshid serves as Chair of the Board of Directors of the National Cannabis Industry Association, as the Co-chair of NCIA’s Policy Council. He has previously served on the Board of the Minority Cannabis Business Association and as Co-chair of its Policy Committee, as well as serving as a founding board member of the California Cannabis Industry Association and as its General Counsel.
Among other honors, Khurshid was profiled in The National Law Journal’s first ever Cannabis Law Trailblazers’ list, was featured in The Hemp Connoisseur magazine’s “100 People You Should Know” issue, and he’s been named to the annual Northern California Super Lawyers Rising Stars list multiple times. He was elected a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation, has twice received SSDP’s Unsung Hero Award, and Arcview Investor Network’s Outstanding Member Award. His work has been profiled in multiple editions of the Arcview Market Research report, and his earliest days in California’s pre-regulated industry are chronicled in Doug Fine’s book Too High To Fail.
