Sorry but we are no longer accepting contract submissions.
VanDerGinst Law has joined a national team of attorneys in pursuing compensation on behalf of corn farmers across the country for lost profits in 2013 and 2014 alleged to have been substantially caused by the actions of Swiss seed company, Syngenta. Unlike some other attorneys, our group is not pursuing a class action lawsuit. A class action usually results in the lawyers getting a bunch of fees and the clients walk away with very little money. We are pursuing what is known as “mass tort” litigation where the farmers are represented individually in order to seek profit recoveries based upon their actual individual damages. This could mean thousands, tens of thousands of dollars or more.
Our team is handling these lawsuits on a contingent fee basis. THERE IS NO FINANCIAL RISK. IF WE DON’T WIN YOU COMPENSATION THERE IS NO ATTORNEY FEE. We have also streamlined the process of handling claims so that there will be very little imposition of your time.

In 2009 Syngenta released a genetically modified corn trait, MIR162. The first generation os MIR 162 was known as Agrisure Viptera. This corn trait was released into the United States market before receiving import approval from China, one of the world’s largest corn importers. Without import approval for this strain, China rejected entire shipments of U.S. corn shipments in 2013 and 2014, triggering a global collapse in U.S. corn prices. The export market disruptions with China cost U.S. farmers billions of dollars.
All Corn Growers Were Impacted
If you were a corn farmer in 2013 and/or 2014 your profits were adversely affected by the market disruption that occurred. ALL U.S. corn growers, regardless of whether or not they planted Syngenta seed, were adversely impacted by this market disruption. In addition to individual farmers, landlords, elevators, transporters, and others in the supply chain may be able to file a claim in order to be made whole by Syngenta. Thousands of corn farmers across the United States have already filed suit.
Members of our legal team have been appointed lead counsel of this litigation by the Minnesota District Court. Our team represents over 30,000 farmers across the country. We’re proud to represent thousands of farmers, elevators, and landlords who have taken action in this matter and look forward to the opportunity to answer your questions about this case.
Farming can be a difficult business and farmers are among the hardest working people in our economy. Like anyone, farmers are entitled to be reasonably compensated for their hard work. Unfortunately, in 2013 and 2014 U.S. corn farmers were denied billions of dollars in earned income.
