Profile

Whitt Steineker has devoted his legal career to representing companies that provide a wide range of goods and services. He provides clients of all types with litigation counsel, transactional advice, and practical strategies for growth. Whitt advises clients of all sizes—from multinational corporations to local businesses—in transactional and litigation matters in jurisdictions across the country and around the world.

Whitt regularly represents clients in the food and beverage industry, from breweries to distributors and wholesalers. As the practice leader of Bradley’s Food, Beverage and Hospitality team, Whitt and his fellow team members counsel clients on a wide range of matters, including corporate formation, growth and expansion strategies, intellectual property issues, real estate matters, and labor and employment issues.

Whitt also counsels clients regarding the ever-evolving legal status of cannabis in the United States and Canada. In this role, he has advised financial institutions on how to effectively and efficiently comply with various regulatory obligations, including those imposed by the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and related Anti-Money Laundering (AML) statutes and regulations. Whitt assists financial institutions that provide services to cannabis companies operating in Canada or states that have legalized cannabis under state law, advising those institutions on how to best comply with the complex state and federal laws governing the provision of financial services to cannabis companies. He also counsels clients and makes presentations on the interplay between the Controlled Substances Act and the provision of services (financial and otherwise) to cannabis companies that operate in states that have legalized cannabis under state law.

Whitt has devoted a substantial portion of his career to the representation of manufacturers of products ranging from tires to prescription drugs to medical devices.

Prior to joining the firm, Whitt was an associate at Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP in New York, where he gained experience in general commercial, antitrust, securities, professional liability, and labor and employment matters as a member of the litigation department.
