Profile

Hunter Robinson represents clients in litigation and compliance-related matters across the country. His litigation practice focuses on representing bank and non-bank financial institutions in class-action litigation involving alleged violations of the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Hunter also represents these institutions in disputes regarding loan repurchase demands, the validity or priority of mortgage liens, and the denial of title insurance claims.

Alongside his financial services litigation practice, Hunter maintains a robust commercial litigation practice. He represents clients of all sizes – from local businesses to publicly traded companies – in breach of contract, business tort, commercial fraud, and collection disputes.

Hunter leverages his experience representing highly regulated businesses to solve problems for cannabis companies and the vendors that serve them. In this role, he advises financial institutions regarding the complex laws governing the provision of financial services to cannabis companies, including the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and related Anti-Money Laundering (AML) statutes and regulations.

Hunter also provides a full suite of legal services to cannabis companies. He has helped hemp and cannabidiol (CBD) companies obtain licenses, form and structure business entities, raise capital, negotiate contracts with suppliers and distributors, manage intellectual property portfolios, and maintain compliance with the ever-shifting state and federal laws that govern their operations.
