Plant Breeders’ Rights

The complex and intricate world of plant breeders’ rights requires a special and in-depth expertise that can only be found amongst those with substantial industry knowledge and practical experience. Owners of new plant and fruit varieties must fiercely protect their innovations and safeguard the plant or fruit’s IP, including seeds, shoots, division and tissue cultures, as well as the product of the fertilization itself, including flowers, fruit and foliage.  Partnering with attorneys with a track record of successfully protecting IP in this niche area is imperative.
