Mogab & Hughes Attorneys, P.C. is representing farmers and companies suing Syngenta AG in lawsuits related to financial losses suffered when China rejected corn shipments containing a genetically modified seed developed by the agribusiness but not approved for use by China. We are filing suit on behalf of farmers and businesses seeking monetary and punitive damages from Syngenta, which is based in Switzerland and has operations in the United States. Syngenta has caused damages to U.S. farmers, grain handlers and exporters, and Syngenta’s conduct in marketing, distributing and selling unapproved corn seed violates the legal standards of the market place because the primary market risk falls on U.S. farmers, grain handlers and exporters and not on Syngenta. We believe that Syngenta was negligent by “prematurely” selling the GMO seed before it was approved by countries that are major markets for U.S. corn export. China, a major buyer of U.S. corn, began rejecting imports in November of 2013 after its officials found evidence of a genetically modified corn seed developed by Syngenta that China had not approved.
