Robins Kaplan Ranked One Of Four Elite U.S. Plaintiffs’ Firms for Antitrust In 2023 GCR 100
December 22, 2022
Robins Kaplan LLP is pleased to announce that it has been named an Elite U.S. Plaintiffs’ firm for the second year in a row in Global Competition Review’s 2023 edition of the GCR 100, a comprehensive guide to the world’s top antitrust and competition practices.
One of just four practices nationwide to receive this recognition, the Robins Kaplan Antitrust and Trade Regulation Group is recognized for the significant wins it has achieved for clients over the last 12 months, as well as its continued leadership in major ongoing antitrust class actions. Select highlights from the past year include:
- Serving as court-appointed co-lead counsel for a class of more than 12 million U.S. merchants in In re Payment Card Interchange Fee and Merchant Discount Litigation, an ongoing antitrust action wherein the firm obtained a settlement of $6.26 billion—the largest in the 120-year history of the Sherman Act—which is currently on appeal;
- Serving as court-appointed co-lead counsel for victims of alleged price-fixing in In re Automotive Parts Antitrust Litigation, an ongoing antitrust action that stems from the largest criminal antitrust investigation in U.S. history and wherein the firm has secured more than $1.2 billion in settlements to date;
- As court-appointed co-lead counsel in In re Disposable Contact Lens Antitrust Litigation, reaching settlements in excess of $118 million on behalf of U.S. contact lens purchasers to resolve the expansive antitrust action against the four dominant manufacturers and the largest nationwide distributor of contact lenses;
- As court-appointed interim lead counsel in BCBSM, Inc. v. Vyera Pharmaceuticals, LLC, et al., reaching a settlement worth $28 million to resolve Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota’s private lawsuit against Martin Shkreli and his former companies for alleged monopolization of the market for Daraprim—a once-affordable, life-saving drug that increased in price by more than 4,000 percent under Shkreli’s leadership; and
- As a member of the plaintiffs’ steering committee in In re Local TV Advertising Antitrust Litigation, reaching settlements with defendants CBS, Fox, and Cox Media in the ongoing antitrust action against the largest owners of local television stations in the United States.
“It is an honor to be recognized once again by GCR for our firm’s commitment to restoring competition in our economy,” said Stacey Slaughter.
“We are grateful to be selected by our clients and courts to represent businesses and consumers that have been harmed by anticompetitive conduct, and we will continue bringing these important antitrust cases until our economy reflects the values embedded in the Sherman Act,” added Kellie Lerner.
Slaughter and Lerner serve as co-chairs of the Robins Kaplan Antitrust and Trade Regulation Group.
