Innovators in the agricultural sector face a host of challenges, from increased raw material costs to competition at home and abroad. McKee, Voorhees & Sease helps manufacturers protect and defend their agritech discoveries, paving the way to increased yield, efficiency, and profitability.
Our team offers a full range of IP services, including advising on long-term business strategy and risk management, conducting due diligence, prosecuting and enforcing patents, facilitating licensing opportunities, guiding inventions to market, and protecting brands through trademark registrations. We also employ a team dedicated exclusively to foreign patent filings, resulting in a high volume of successful patents filed in over 160 countries. Manufacturers and large companies with international sales benefit from the time and effort we invest in our client relationships, which often span several decades.
The firm’s record of success in this sector stems from our deep-rooted connection to Midwest agriculture. Many of our lawyers were raised in rural farming communities and earned engineering and science degrees from the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and Creighton University, giving us firsthand knowledge of pressing agricultural issues. We couple that insight with avid participation in the industry – from regularly attending trade shows to mentoring startups through the Iowa AgriTech Accelerator program – to provide our clients with proactive, informed counsel.
