More Than $4 Billion Won

There’s a reason that many consider Wisner Baum to be, quite simply, among the best in the business: Our attorneys have represented thousands of victims in some of the most complex litigation, securing over $4 billion in recovery for victims of serious, life-altering injuries. Our firm served as co-lead trial counsel in cases against agrochemical giant Monsanto Company (now part of Bayer) that resulted in two of the largest jury verdicts in recent history, worth a combined $2.344 billion upon initial judgment. The verdicts in Johnson v. Monsanto Co. and Pilliod et al. v. Monsanto Co. were hard-earned legal victories that will have a lasting impact not just for the plaintiffs and their families, but for public health and the environment too.
