Clark Wu


Business attorney and litigator Clark Wu takes a holistic, responsive, and strategy-focused approach to client relations. His well-rounded background makes him a vital member of the firm’s cannabis and hemp, commercial and business litigation, and corporate transactions departments

Clark provides comprehensive legal counsel in transactional matters ranging from domestic mergers & acquisitions to transnational collaboratives and deals. He also provides general outside counsel services to businesses, advising clients on IP, capital raises, lending, branding, corporate structuring, management disputes, employment issues, and other related matters. In doing so, Clark leverages his litigation background to help clients mitigate risk and resolve business disputes in a cost-effective manner.

Clients rely on Clark to confidently navigate and at times shape the still-nascent regulatory landscape for cannabis and hemp. In this capacity, he has helped clients resolve various issues with federal agencies such as FDA enforcement, as well as formulate innovative solutions to regulatory issues with state and local agencies in Arizona, California, Washington, Utah, Missouri and other jurisdictions.

Outside of the office, Clark enjoys cooking, golfing, and spending time with his pet chow mix, Osa.
