We have tried and won cases against Bayer Cropscience®

You aren’t like any other farmer. We believe we aren’t like any other agricultural law firm. Phipps Anderson Deacon LLP thinks big for clients, while staying grounded with small town values based on honesty, integrity and character. Our team of nationally recognized attorneys are among the best in the country, specializing in agricultural cases and individual representation of farmers against big corporations. We are the lead attorneys in the Illinois Syngenta® and Grain Trade Industry Case, and currently represent thousands of farmers from corn-producing states throughout the Midwest.

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® and grain trade industry corn lawsuit team will analyze your farm or business and evaluate your claim at no cost to you.

We Believe Syngenta is an individual case

Time to decide. You may have been harmed, even if you did not buy from Syngenta. We believe in individual representation.

Important Class Action Deadline Approaching

You need to act soon; otherwise you may be lumped into a class action with fewer options. Court deadlines are fast approaching. The lawyers that want this case to be a class action filed their motion back on June 15, 2016. Then, U.S. District Court held a hearing on September 13, 2016, to determine how the case would proceed. The court has subsequently ruled that the case against Syngenta will move forward as a class action. Phipps Anderson Deacon believes individual representation is the best option for farmers. No two farms are exactly the same. Legal representation should not be the same for everyone either. Our team will fight for your farm with integrity, honesty and character.

We are a group of lawyers that have banded together to take on multinational conglomerate Syngenta® and other companies that are responsible for you losing the China corn market. Two of our lead lawyers, Martin J. Phipps and Barry Deacon, tried cases very similar 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. We have been representing farmers in cases like this for over a decade.

No two farming operations are the same. The class may be a good choice for some farmers who do not want to hire an individual attorney, file a lawsuit and opt out of a class settlement. For more information about the class action go to http://www.syngentacornlitigation.com
