About Peter Padden:

Since 2017, and the broad legalization of cannabis in the state of California, Peter has dedicated his practice of real estate to providing an institutional level of professionalism, tools, and services to the legal marijuana and hemp industries. This higher level of insight and partnership has benefited large and small cannabis businesses and landlords across nine states, as Peter’s commitment to excellence on behalf of his clients has been hard to replicate in today’s brokerage marketplace. 

A graduate of the Villanova School of Business with a degree in finance, Peter’s analytical approach to the unique mechanics of transacting cannabis real estate enables both veterans and novices in the industry to benefit from his years of complex deal making in an ever-evolving industry. His move to James Capital Advisors to help co-found the cannabis corporate real estate team with excellent new tools and partners should further the depth and breadth of the advisory that he seeks to provide capable operators.
