Dowd Bennett Obtains $7,626,744 Verdict for Monsanto Company

Dowd Bennett recently represented Monsanto Company at trial in the matter of Monsanto Company v. ConocoPhillips Company, 08SL-CC 02002.  The matter involved the breach of a supply agreement and was tried for nine days in St. Louis County Circuit Court.  On June 28, 2010, following an hour and a half of deliberation, the jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of Monsanto Company in the amount of $7, 626, 744, which is exactly the amount that Monsanto Company was seeking in damages.  The Dowd Bennett trial team was comprised of Jim Bennett, Gabe Gore, Jen Kingston and Nancy Carson, but as always at Dowd Bennett, it was a total firm effort.  We are very pleased to have been able to obtain this great result for our valued client.
