Gevo's Brett Lund wins award as "Best Corporate Counsel"

MarketWatch noted on 23 April 2012: Gevo, Inc., a leading renewable chemicals and advanced biofuels company, is pleased to announce that Executive Vice President and General Counsel Brett Lund recently received the Denver Business Journal's (DBJ) "Best Corporate Counsel" award at a ceremony in Denver. Lund was recognized for his strong business acumen, intellectual property expertise, strategic deal making, Securities and Exchange Commission acumen, human resources knowledge, and experience in raising money. "It was an honor to receive the DBJ's Best Corporate Counsel award for public companies," said Lund. "It's a humbling experience to be recognized for my contributions at Gevo, within the community and amongst my peers. I attribute my success to the collaborative culture and leadership at Gevo." The DBJ's selection was attributed to Lund's efforts in defending Gevo's intellectual property against patent-infringement lawsuits filed by Butamax(TM) Advanced Biofuels, LLC (Butamax). Lund built up Gevo's intellectual property portfolio to include over 300 hundred patents and applications. Gevo filed counterclaims against Butamax and E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (DuPont) for infringement of two of its patents and has added an additional four patent infringement lawsuits against Butamax and DuPont. ****************************** See post Brett Lund, Gevo EVP & General Counsel Awarded "Best Corporate Counsel" Lund Receives Award at 2nd Annual Denver Business Journal's Award Program
