AgriTech

About

We are one of the very few law firms in the UK who can truly claim to have long-term sector-specific expertise in both agriculture and technology. 

Across the firm we have a top-class team of experts who have been specialising in agricultural and rural affairs for many decades, with valued long-term clients including landed estates, family-run farms, large farming businesses and large rural landholders. We understand that the agricultural sector is unique, with its own laws, its own business models and traditions, and its own commercial challenges.

Drawing on this expertise, our Technology team is uniquely well placed to advise on all aspects of Agri-Tech development, including the protection of ideas and know-how, contracts for the use or exploitation of Agri-Tech technologies and the resolution of disputes. We have drafted and negotiated an extensive range of contracts concerning farming technology, renewable energy, land management systems, and regularly advise on intellectual property protection and disputes.

Whether you are an inventor with an Agri-Tech invention, an early stage or established Agri-Tech business, or maybe a farmer, landowner or food producer, we can help you to achieve your commercial goals.
