Law360 Profiles Robbins Geller Partner Tor Gronborg
On April 19, 2017, Law360 published a profile on Robbins Geller partner Tor Gronborg as part of its Q&A series featuring top plaintiffs attorneys. The publication commends Gronborg’s excellent track record, which includes serving “as lead or co-lead counsel in numerous securities fraud cases that have collectively recovered nearly $2 billion for investors.”
Law360 highlights Gronborg’s work in several significant cases, including Cardinal Health ($600 million), Motorola ($200 million), Duke Energy ($146.25 million), Sprint Nextel Corp. ($131 million) and Intercept Pharmaceuticals ($55 million). When asked about what the most important skill for achieving success as a plaintiffs attorney is, Gronborg stressed the value of tenacity. “As a plaintiffs lawyer, you are likely going to be bringing cases against some of the most powerful companies in the world, facing off against the largest and most prestigious defense firms, and confronting laws designed to delay or stop you and your clients,” remarked Gronborg. “You will lose when you think you should win, and you will need to push on despite those losses.”
Over the past 20 years, Gronborg has worked with a wide array of clients, “from individuals trying to recover their life savings to large pension funds supporting workers and communities,” and these relationships are one of the most rewarding aspects of his work. “My clients know that my only incentive is to achieve the best possible result for them, and that has given me the freedom to aggressively litigate my cases and commit the resources necessary to succeed.”
The Q&A also touches on subjects such as Gronborg’s advice to young lawyers, ongoing trends impacting the legal world, and the one thing defense attorneys don’t understand about practicing as a plaintiffs attorney.
Law360 additionally highlights that as a frequent lecturer on topics like the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and electronic discovery, Gronborg’s career has been vast. “On three separate occasions, Gronborg’s pleadings have been upheld by the federal courts of appeals and [he] has also been responsible for a number of significant rulings, such as In re Sanofi-Aventis Securities Litigation and Silverman v. Motorola Inc.”
