United States: Orrick To Partner With THRIVE To Provide Counsel To Early Stage Agriculture And Food Tech Companies
Last Updated: July 18 2017

Orrick announced today it is partnering with SVG Partners and THRIVE AgTech Venture & Innovation Platform to offer exclusive legal counsel to seed and growth stage agriculture and food technology companies. Under the direction of Orrick partner Matteo Daste, the firm will invest time to guide companies in THRIVE's annual accelerator cohorts, many of which have originally been established in foreign countries, to organize themselves with a proper legal framework consistent with operating and raising capital in Silicon Valley.

The announcement of Orrick's involvement in the innovative project comes on the eve of the Third Annual Forbes AgTech Summit in Salinas, where Silicon Valley and agriculture industry leaders will showcase the latest innovations and startups for growers, investors and stakeholders in the global agricultural ecosystem. SVG Partners and THRIVE collaborate on the annual event.

Matteo, a partner in Orrick's Technology Companies Group, said he was attracted to the THRIVE platform to support entrepreneurs building disruptive technologies for food and agriculture. "This partnership signifies our commitment to serving the technology sector at every level," he said. "We believe that offering experienced counsel is critical to helping entrepreneurs attract strategic investors and customers. Having a partnership specially built for emerging ag and food tech companies is part of Orrick's mission to support technology companies at the frontline of their industries."

THRIVE leaders expressed excitement about Orrick's role. "Having Orrick join the THRIVE platform as our exclusive legal counsel is of enormous benefit to technology companies disrupting the food and agriculture industries," said THRIVE founder and CEO John Hartnett.
