Husch Blackwell, LLP

By Natasha Lilly, The Equity

Please welcome to AgGateway Husch Blackwell, LLP, a full-service law firm with over 700 attorneys, over 50 of whom are committed to the legal needs of the food and agribusiness industry. After speaking with Joan Archer, PhD, J.D., a partner with Husch Blackwell, I could understand how passionate Husch Blackwell is to be involved in AgGateway.

“I, along with my other partner, am excited to contribute to the work of the members of AgGateway because our involvement aligns with our firm’s motto ‘Industry First,’” said Archer.

Archer stated that it was word of mouth from one of their clients that led to their AgGateway membership. Husch Blackwell has joined the Data Privacy and Security Committee,  which provides a support forum to discuss opportunities, risks and standards associated with data privacy, protection, security and sharing. Husch Blackwell brings years of data privacy experience to the table, and the firm’s attorneys are excited to get started. They have worked with several precision ag companies on data privacy and other issues for several years.

Husch Blackwell’s Food and Agribusiness subject area points of focus include:

  • Agriculture Technology, including Precision Ag and Seed Technology
  • Organic and Sustainable Agriculture
