Stan Benda, Ph.D. is known as The Plant Lawyer. We had a fruitful conversation that you may find very sweet.
Stan practices law specializing in contracts concerning technology transfer / licensing with expertise in advanced technologies, especially agricultural biotechnology; novel foods (aka genetically modified); new plant varieties; plant breeders rights; stone fruits and in propagation, genetics, and licensing of cannabis. He also writes a blog, posting on legal issues concerning field crops, breeding, GM, regulation, new plant/crop varieties and food safety. Twitter. Stan also advises agricultural lawyers for whom this is not their area of expertise, so they can ensure they maintain their client base and loyalty. I hope you enjoy this candid conversation.
