Patrick J. Stueve Inducted as Fellow in the International Academy of Trial Lawyers.
On Saturday April 13, 2019 Patrick J. Stueve of Stueve Siegel Hanson LLP was inducted as a Fellow into the International Academy of Trial Lawyers at their annual meeting held April 10-14 in London, England.
The Academy is recognized as the most prestigious organization of trial lawyers in the world. Membership is by invitation only and is strictly limited to 500 active trial lawyers in the United States along with 140 Fellows from 40 other countries. Fellows are only admitted after an extremely rigorous vetting process, which includes both peer and judicial review.
“I am honored to be inducted as a Fellow into the IATL, an organization that I greatly admire and respect for their global work to promote the rule of law” says Stueve. “It is a privilege to join such an extraordinary group of trial attorneys from around the world.”
The Academy’s purposes are to promote the rule of law, promote reforms in the law, facilitate the administration of justice, and elevate the standards of integrity, honor, and courtesy in the legal profession globally.
Recognized by the National Law Journal, Law 360, and Best Lawyers for his work on “Bet the Company”, Antitrust and Complex Commercial Litigation cases, Patrick Stueve has successfully prosecuted claims in federal and state courts nationwide against some of the largest companies in the world including Merck, Formula 1 Racing, ITW, Citigroup, United Healthcare and AIG.
Most recently, Patrick served as co-lead counsel in a landmark case against agribusiness giant Syngenta on behalf of corn growers, grain handling facilities and ethanol plants nationwide. Following a $217 million dollar jury verdict in the first of several cases set for trial, the case settled for $1.51 billion– believed to be the largest agricultural settlement in U.S. History – resolving thousands of cases against Syngenta related to its marketing and launch of genetically modified corn seed.
