We are one of the few agritech legal advisers in New Zealand with a depth of experience in this fast growing sector.

We operate at the leading edge of the technological, policy and legal trends which shape the technology industry.

Our active involvement in key industry groups means that we understand, are engaged in, and influence the technology sector (including agritech) in New Zealand.

We work as part of specialist team drawn from across the firm's practice groups, which means we are uniquely well placed to advise on all agritech matters including:

  • the protection of intellectual property;
  • agreements governing the development, use and exploitation of agritech technologies;
  • the collection, use and commercialisation of data;
  • funding and shareholder agreements;
  • employee and contractor arrangements; and
  • agency, reseller and distribution arrangements.

Our clients include public and private sector developers, funders, contractors, end users and service and technology providers.
