NEW YORK (June 5, 2013) – Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P. is pleased to announce that Kellie Lerner has been selected a “Rising Star 2013” and is profiled in the June 6, 2013 issue of New York Law Journal.
“Rising Stars are a group of attorneys 40 years old or younger who have already made their mark on the New York legal community… these lawyers exhibit superb legal skills, keen judgment, creativity and dedication that have made a lasting impression on their colleagues and clients,” the publication notes.
Ms. Lerner has over a decade of experience litigating high stakes antitrust actions, where she has successfully obtained nearly $100 million on behalf of her clients. She has worked on several groundbreaking antitrust cases, including serving as a member of the trial team in In re Abbott Laboratories Norvir Antitrust Litigation, which challenged Abbott's 400% price increase of a life-saving HIV medication. On the eve of trial, the team negotiated a $10 million settlement for the benefit of non-profit organizations serving individuals living with HIV/AIDS. She also played a significant role in In re Flat Glass II Antitrust Litigation (obtaining more than $22 million in settlements) and In re Puerto Rican Cabotage Antitrust Litigation (obtaining $52 million in settlements).
