Overview

Tor Gronborg is a partner in Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP’s San Diego office and a member of the Firm’s Management Committee. He often lectures on topics such as the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and electronic discovery. Tor has served as lead or co-lead counsel in numerous securities fraud cases that have collectively recovered more than $4.4 billion for investors. Most recently, Tor and a team of Robbins Geller attorneys obtained an $809 million settlement in In re Twitter, Inc. Sec. Litig., a case that did not settle until the day before trial was set to commence.

($131 million), and Prison Realty ($104 million), to name a few. Tor was also a member of the Firm’s trial team in Hsu v. Puma Biotechnology, Inc., No. SACV15-0865 (C.D. Cal.), a securities fraud class action that resulted in a verdict in favor of investors after a two-week jury trial and ultimately settled for 100% of the claimed damages plus prejudgment interest.

Dura Pharms., Inc., 339 F.3d 933 (9th Cir. 2003), rev’d on other grounds, 544 U.S. 336 (2005); In re Daou Sys., 411 F.3d 1006 (9th Cir. 2005); Staehr v. Hartford Fin.
