Plant variety protection is at the backbone of Global Plant Genetics. Our Intellectual Property (IP) Department as well as our wider network of specialist IP lawyers work continually on the protection of new varieties gaining Plant Patents and Plant Variety Rights the world over.

We are proudly members of CIOPORA expanding our network of likeminded people and companies involved in the protection of asexually reproduced horticultural plant varieties.


As well as Plant Patents and Plant Breeders Rights, Global Plant Genetics often uses Trademarks and Copyright to protect the Intellectual Property that it manages. 

DNA fingerprinting of varieties as well as detailed contract law is used to police and enforce the protection of our IP when required in conjunction with our legal teams.
