Monsanto Genetically Engineered Wheat Contamination Class Action

TBS represented Pacific Northwest soft white wheat farmers against Monsanto Company in a case related its genetically modified Round-up resistant wheat, which the FDA never approved for growing in the United States. In May 2013, Monsanto's genetically-modified wheat was discovered growing wild on an Eastern Oregon farm, which resulted in market disruptions to the exports of soft white wheat and damaged farmers. Monsanto agreed to pay $2.5 million into a settlement fund for Washington, Oregon, and Idaho wheat growers harmed by the market disruption.

    Chase...thank you for your professional assistance in the resolution of the recent lawsuit against me. I could not have obtained such a favorable outcome without your assistance even though I am a lawyer myself and have handled similar matters during my over 40 year legal career.

    You have saved me tens of thousands of dollars over what I could have obtained had I tried to handle the matter myself. With hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake you were worth every penny of your most reasonable fee. Beyond that was the peace of mind for both me and my wife during the process, and you can’t put a price tag on that. Your knowledge and expertise were much appreciated.

    Janissa - I would never talk to any lawyer about anything until I talk to you first. You are just simply AMAZING and not only did you go completely above and beyond to ensure my daughter's trust was safe and secure, but every time I thought I couldn't go on, you constantly assured me that everything would be all right.
