Minneapolis, MN—July 7, 2016—Robins Kaplan LLP® is pleased to announce that Hollis Salzman, co-chair of the firm’s Antitrust and Trade Regulation Practice, has been named to the 2016 edition of Benchmark Litigation’s “Top 250 Women in Litigation.” This list is considered to be the definitive guide to the country’s leading female litigators, and features honorees from most of the 50 states, plus the District of Columbia.
Two decades into her career, Ms. Salzman has served as court appointed co-lead counsel on a number of the world’s largest antitrust litigation matters, recovering more than $1.5 billion for victims of anticompetitive conduct. Notably, Ms. Salzman is co-lead counsel in the massive In re Air Cargo Shipping Services Litigation, a decade-long global price-fixing conspiracy to inflate prices of shipping services against major air freight carriers around the world. This past May, Ms. Salzman reached resolution with the last two of nearly three dozen air carriers, pushing the plaintiffs’ total recoveries to over $1.2 billion.
Ms. Salzman’s groundbreaking work also includes her role as co-lead counsel in In re Automotive Parts Antitrust Litigation—stemming from what the government calls the largest price-fixing conspiracy in U.S. history—in which she has recovered nearly $500 million for purchasers of car parts affected by price-fixing agreements. Her advocacy in such matters has been recognized by Chambers USA, Benchmark Litigation, and the Legal 500, among others. She has also been named to the National Law Journal’s first-ever “Antitrust and M&A Trailblazers” list and Global Investigations Review’s list of the 100 most influential women in the field of investigations.
