Phipps Anderson Deacon LLP is a different kind of law firm – rooted in the small town values of honesty, integrity and character. Our team of nationally recognized attorneys are among the best in the country, specializing in the areas of agricultural, insurance disputes, death and traumatic injuries, hospital liens and other complex litigation. When you have a legal matter, turn to the Phipps team for representation you can believe in, from a team you can trust.

Our attorneys have over 100 years of combined experience specifically in agriculture, defending the rights of farmers against big companies such as Syngenta® and Bayer®. Our Syngenta® corn lawsuit team is currently working with thousands of farmers across America’s heartland to defend small producers from the loss of the China market. We are standing up to Syngenta® and the grain trade industry as the lead counsel in the state of Illinois, as well as representing farmers from all other corn-producing states across the Midwest

Over 100 strong and fighting for you.

Who are we?

Small town values. Big time legal team.

We are a group of lawyers that have banded together to take on multinational conglomerate Syngenta® and the grain trade industry who we believe is responsible for American farmers losing the China corn market. Two of our lead lawyers, Martin J. Phipps and Barry Deacon, tried similar cases in Arkansas in what is known as the Bayer GMO Rice Case. Martin was the first lawyer to win not only individually determined damages for his farmers but also the first lawyer to win punitive damages against Bayer. Barry was responsible for the largest verdict in Arkansas history against Bayer.

So how should you choose a lawyer when the stakes are high? Give any lawyer the Phipps lawyer test – just ask if they have ever worked in your same line of business? And, have they ever had their backs against the wall, with everything on the line? Because chances are, we have experience in your business, and we know how to perform when it’s crunch time.

When you you have an agricultural, insurance or big business dispute on your hands, you need the Phipps Anderson Deacon legal team.
