April 03, 2020

Robins Kaplan is pleased to announce that Hollis Salzman and Tara Sutton have been named to Lawdragon’s “500 Leading Lawyers in America” list. According to Lawdragon, the list is the leading guide to the nation's best lawyers and judges. It is comprised of private lawyers from a wide range of practices, as well as in-house counsel, law professors, judges and neutrals, government attorneys, and public interest lawyers. Those named to the list represent less than one-half of one percent of the legal profession, placing them among the most elite group of legal professionals.

Salzman is managing partner of the firm’s New York office, co-chair of the firm’s Antitrust and Trade Regulation practice, and a member of the firm’s Executive Board. She currently serves as Chair of the New York State Bar Association Antitrust Law Section. Two decades into her career, Salzman has served as a court-appointed lead counsel on some of the world’s largest antitrust litigation matters, recovering more than $2 billion for victims of anticompetitive conduct. In the past year alone, she secured more than $53 million in settlements for victims of a massive web of anticompetitive conspiracies throughout the auto parts industry.

Sutton is the chair of the firm’s Mass Tort Group and a member of the Executive Board. She currently serves as co-lead counsel on behalf of the State of Minnesota in its suit against JUUL Labs.  Sutton also serves in leadership on behalf of hundreds of Tribal Governments in the Opioid multi-district litigation. In recent years, she has served as lead trial counsel in bellwether cases concerning the drugs Abilify, Chantix, and Mirapex, and spearheaded the negotiation of a $1.4 billion global settlement program resolving Stryker Rejuvenate/ABGII modular hip implant litigation and a $358 million settlement of the Benicar hypertension litigation. She is a recent past President of the public interest law firm, Public Justice.
