Archer & Greiner, P.C.


Archer’s Cannabis Law Practice is led by industry expert William J. Caruso, a long-time public policy adviser and founding member of the New Jersey United for Marijuana Reform steering committee and a board member for the New Jersey Cannabis Industry Association. Bill is part of a select group of attorneys chosen to advise the State of New Jersey on the intricacies of marijuana legalization, taxation and regulation. Representing clients that are both veterans and new leaders in the medical and adult-use cannabis industries, including retailers, processors, growers and ancillary businesses, he leads a formidable team of attorneys who provide guidance on marijuana-related business issues, including strategic planning and transactions, employment law, land use, zoning and municipal law, and healthcare law.

Prior to joining Archer, Mr. Caruso served nearly five years as the Executive Director of the New Jersey Assembly Majority Office in Trenton. He was responsible for developing and implementing the Assembly’s policy agenda, and, as top aide to the Speaker, served as lead staff negotiator on all policy matters and as liaison to the Governor’s office, Senate and state departments. He was responsible for daily management of approximately 30 policy research professionals and communications and administrative staff. During his tenure, Mr. Caruso helped shepherd through numerous pieces of landmark legislation, including pension and health benefits reform.

Prior to taking the Assembly post, Mr. Caruso served for more than 11 years as Chief of Staff for U.S. Rep. Andrews, a Camden County Democrat. In that position, Mr. Caruso had responsibility for overseeing all aspects of the Congressman’s policy and public relations agenda, with specialization in economic development, education and defense policy. He was responsible for daily management of approximately 20 policy research professionals and communications and administrative staff in offices in New Jersey and Washington, D.C. Mr. Caruso also served 11 years as Congressman Andrews’ Campaign Manager.

Mr. Caruso served as Democratic legal and public relations advisor to the 2011 New Jersey Apportionment Commission, which was tasked with redrawing the lines of the state’s 40 legislative districts following the 2010 census. He has twice been named by to the political news site’s Power List of New Jersey’s most influential political and policy players.

Mr. Caruso earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Government from Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa., and his Juris Doctorate from Rutgers University School of Law–Camden.
