January 28, 2021
Robins Kaplan is pleased to announce that Tara Sutton has been named to Lawdragon’s “500 Leading Lawyers in America” list for the sixth consecutive year. 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.
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 past president of the public interest law firm, Public Justice.
