Shabnam Malek

Shabnam Malek is a partner at Brand & Branch LLP and founding President of the International Cannabis Bar Association. Shabnam’s practice is diverse and touches various industries and practice areas, but her true passion is in bringing her brand protection and trademark law expertise to regulated industries. Shabnam represents large, global companies as well as smaller startups and local companies in developing strong intellectual property portfolios, defending their rights, and expanding their presence through agreements nationally and globally. During the launch of Brand & Branch, Shabnam and her law partner, Amanda R. Conley, founded the National Cannabis Bar Association, which recently expanded its reach to become the International Cannabis Bar Association (INCBA). Today, INCBA boasts a membership base of over 600 individual attorney members and a strong international presence. Shabnam and Amanda’s vision for the organization was realized in the organization’s flagship annual two-day legal educational event, the Cannabis Law Institute.
