There are numerous law firms
that hold themselves out as having agribusiness practices but only a few are
the go-to firms in the agriculture technology (AgTech) micro-niche. Total investment in 2017 in this micro-niche was
reported to have exceeded $1.5 billion. The “digital transformation” of agriculture is necessary
if we want to continue filling our baskets with healthy, affordable food. Imagine: driverless tractors tilling acres
of crops, produce growing in massive climate-controlled warehouses, and seeds
genetically altered to require less water are among the high-tech innovations
changing, or about to change, agriculture.

of lucrative opportunity for attorneys and practice groups that care to invest
non-billable time in developing themselves as the "go-to" experts.
