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.

As co-chair of Bradley’s Cannabis Industry team, Whitt represents clients on a wide range of cannabis issues. In addition to providing a full suite of legal services to cannabis companies, Whitt and the Cannabis Industry team advise non-cannabis clients – from banks to commercial real estate companies to insurance companies and high-net-worth individuals – on best practices for doing business (or, when appropriate, not doing business) with cannabis companies.

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 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.
