Eugene Mikolajczyk is Of Counsel in Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP’s San Diego office. He has over 30 years’ experience prosecuting shareholder and securities litigation cases as both individual and class actions. Among the cases are Heckmann v. Ahmanson, in which the court granted a preliminary injunction to prevent a corporate raider from exacting greenmail from a large domestic media/entertainment company.
Mikolajczyk was a primary litigation counsel in an international coalition of attorneys and human rights groups that won a historic settlement with major United States clothing retailers and manufacturers, including The Gap, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan and Calvin Klein, on behalf of a class of over 50,000 predominantly female Chinese garment workers on the island of Saipan in an action seeking to hold the Saipan garment industry responsible for creating a system of indentured servitude and forced labor in the island’s garment factories. The coalition obtained an unprecedented agreement for supervision of working conditions in the Saipan factories by an independent NGO, as well as a substantial multi-million dollar compensation award for the workers.
Mikolajczyk earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Elizabethtown College. He earned a Juris Doctor degree from Dickinson School of Law, Penn State University, where he was the Managing Editor of the Dickinson Law Review.
