June 2, 2021

Lawdragon recently announced that Robins Kaplan partners Philip Sieff and Roman Silberfeld have been named to the 2021 “Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers in America” guide.

Compiled by the Lawdragon editorial board, the guide recognizes the nation’s preeminent attorneys who represent consumers who have been injured or had family killed through accidents, medical malpractice, faulty products, or toxic exposure.

For decades, Phil Sieff has battled for justice when wrongdoers have caused serious injury or death. His extensive experience includes a number of complex and high profile cases, including serving as lead co-counsel of the I-35W Consortium, a group of 17 law firms that provided legal services to over 100 collapse victims. The consortium recovered more than $77 million for survivors and those who lost loved ones in the bridge collapse. Sieff’s other work includes recovering $15.4 million for the victim of an industrial accident and representing the families of two men killed by a methadone-impaired driver. Sieff is regularly recognized for his professional accomplishments, including being named “Attorney of the Year” by Minnesota Lawyer and a “Minnesota Super Lawyer” by Super Lawyers every year for the past twenty years.

Roman Silberfeld, the firm’s National Trial Chair, has more than 40 years of experience as a trial lawyer in civil and criminal cases, including white-collar crime, environmental, personal injury, antitrust, and securities law. He has been lead counsel in a number of high-profile trials, representing both plaintiffs and defendants, and earned more than 50 trial victories, including a $319 million judgment against Walt Disney in a case over profits from ABC’s “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.” He has also served as lead counsel in a number of MDL matters, including In re Wells Fargo Collateral Protection Insurance Litigation, which settled in November 2019 for $432.4 million. He is currently serving a one-year term as President of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers.
