Thank you for the terrific work you and your team did for Gevo in our battle with Butamax. You clearly out-lawyered the opposition in the preliminary injunction hearing and every other major court appearance. Without the string of successes you achieved before Judge Robinson, we would not have survived. – Brett Lund, General Counsel, Gevo
