Partner David Hickerson was quoted in a Wall Street Journal piece, “Cargill Sues Syngenta Over Sale of GMO Seeds Unapproved in China,” on September 12, 2014, discussing the global issues surrounding genetically modified crops. Hickerson noted that Syngenta faced no contractual obligations with Cargill and was quoted saying, “A real issue will be: What duty did Syngenta owe to Cargill? Syngenta may argue, ‘We are just legally selling our product. If you wanted to sell that product to China, it was your obligation to make sure it complied with whatever import rules applied.’”
