Joel Edwin Cape
Frilot partner Joel E. Cape has an extensive background in Agribusiness Law, Intellectual Property in Plant Materials, Products Liability, Plant Licensing Technology, Agricultural Business Disputes, and Insurance Defense. For well over a decade, the heartbeat of Mr. Cape's practice has been representing clients in business and tort litigation. His clients have included small businesses, large companies, and individuals engaged in litigation both as plaintiffs and defendants.

Mr. Cape grew up in Collinsville, Oklahoma, a rural community north of Tulsa, where his family raised commercial and pure bred cattle. He has been fortunate to have the opportunity to stay connected to his agricultural roots through his law practice. After earning his Juris Doctor degree, Mr. Cape simultaneously sat for the Arkansas and Oklahoma bar exams, passing both in the same sitting. He then went on to earn a Master of Laws degree in Agricultural Law from the University of Arkansas School of Law, the only advanced law degree program for agricultural law in the United States. Mr. Cape represents agribusinesses, particularly seed and horticultural companies, and agricultural producers, and helps them confront the legal issues that are unique to the industry. He is often invited to speak to industry groups and professionals regarding current trends and issues.
