November 19, 2019

Local Law Firm Founded by Powerhouse Alcohol Duo Has Been Helping Clients Achieve Their Business Goals Since the Fall of 2017

FLORIDA – November 19, 2019 – The alcohol attorneys at Spiritus Law in Miami, Florida, are celebrating the firm’s second anniversary this fall. Two years ago, Robert and Marbet Lewis decided that after more than a decade of leading alcohol practice groups, that they would start their own firm. The powerhouse couple established a boutique law firm with a specialized regulatory practice focused on laws governing alcohol industry members at all three tiers, the cannabis industry, and other regulated industries. Spiritus Law is one of the few women and minority-owned law firms with a dedicated practice focused on the alcohol industry and other regulated products.

In 2018, the firm was re-branded as Spiritus Law, thereby reinforcing the firm’s unique image as a dynamic team that cares deeply for its clients, expertise in regulated industries that translates to client success and to resolve to achieve clients’ goals in creative, groundbreaking ways. 

“Large law firms often have difficulty engaging in fresh approaches to the business of Law because of strict internal procedures and a general lack of support to try something different. We are tapping into the innovative approaches of our clients and their commitment to diversity and inclusion in business and applying those values to our legal practice to add value to our services,” said Founding Partner, Marbet Lewis.

Two years ago, the Lewis’ decided to create a cutting-edge firm with their dynamic team bringing over 100 years of collective experience that offers the opportunity to do business differently. As founders of Spiritus Law, Marbet and Rob believe that traditional hierarchies and billing systems, limit lawyers’ abilities to creatively, collaboratively, and efficiently solve their clients’ problems. They are confident that Spiritus Law’s creative approach to legal practice will lead to happier clients and happier work environments.

“Two years into our mission, we are grateful to our wonderful team that shares a singular vision and focus – to provide high-quality and unsurpassed service to our clients,” says Robert Lewis.

Marbet Lewis adds, “We also thank our clients for being loyal and believing in us. Over the past two years, we have been able to represent many wonderful people in the growing alcohol and cannabis industries.”
