Smith Anderson’s AgTech Practice Thrives with Fourth Consecutive Year Recognized as a Chambers Global Market Leader

Chambers Global Guide

Smith Anderson remains in the exclusive company of only seven law firms in the world to be recognized in the Agribusiness chapter of the Chambers Global 2023 guide, for the fourth year in a row.

In describing Smith Anderson’s practice, Chambers shared this assessment from a client: "When it comes to licensing and deals, they’re the people I want at the table with me. They do a great job understanding the smallest detail while still keeping the big picture in mind. They think strategically about how each step in the negotiation positions me for my long-term goal. I am very pleased with the work they did on our international deals."

Chambers is often referred to as “the gold-standard” legal credentialing publication, and the guide ranks the top lawyers and law firms in over 200 jurisdictions around the world. Rankings are based on in-depth research conducted by more than 200 research analysts who compare the strengths and advantages of the leading firms for international work across these jurisdictions.

Smith Anderson’s AgTech practice is a key industry focus for the firm, complementary to the firm’s Life Sciences practice (which is recognized by credentialing publication LMG Life Sciences). The team, led by John Therien and Jason Brege, has extensive experience advising companies in all phases of technology development and commercialization, including in areas such as genome editing, gene discovery, trait development and licensing, crop protection, cloud biology, plant-made pharmaceuticals, microbials, systems biology, animal health, food technologies, biofuels and precision agriculture. In addition, we advise AgTech and FoodTech companies on protecting and enforcing intellectual property rights, including trademark prosecution, maintenance and counselling, advertising counselling and strategic litigation risk management. We also provide wide-ranging support in corporate-related matters, including mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital financing, and related real estate development and construction projects for AgTech and FoodTech companies.
