Roberta  Liebenberg, Esq.

Roberta (“Bobbi”) Liebenberg is a senior partner at Fine, Kapan and Black in Philadelphia and also a principal in The Red Bee Group, a women-owned consulting group that uses data-based strategies to attain DEI objectives. She focuses her practice on antitrust, class actions, and complex commercial litigation, and has been appointed by courts to represent classes in many class actions. She is now Lead Counsel for the End Payer Class in the Generic Pharmaceuticals Pricing Antitrust Litigation, which is the largest pending antitrust MDL in the country. She was also one of trial counsel for the class in the Urethanes Antitrust Litigation, where a $1.06 billion judgment was entered against Dow Chemical Company after a four-week jury trial. That was the largest price-fixing judgment ever. The judgment was affirmed by the Tenth Circuit and, during Dow’s appeal to the Supreme Court, it settled for $835 million, the most ever obtained from a single defendant in a price-fixing case. She has also defended Fortune 500 companies, including Southwest Airlines, and Temple University in class actions and other complex commercial litigation.  

 

She has written and spoken extensively about many issues of importance to women lawyers and has chaired numerous organizations devoted to gender equality in the profession, including the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession, the ABA Gender Equity Task Force, the ABA Presidential Initiative on Achieving Long Term Careers for Women in Law, DirectWomen (the only organization devoted to increasing the number of women attorneys on corporate boards), the Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Bar Associations’ respective committees on women in the profession, and the Pennsylvania Interbranch Commission for Gender, Racial and Ethnic Fairness. She has received many awards and honors, including induction into the American Antitrust Institute Private Enforcement Hall of Fame, the Margaret Brent Women Lawyers of Achievement Award from the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession, the Lynette Norton Award from the Pennsylvania Bar Association, the Sandra Day O'Connor Award from the Philadelphia Bar Association, and the Florence K. Murray Award from the National Association of Women Judges. She was named by former Pennsylvania Governor Edward Rendell as a "Distinguished Daughter of Pennsylvania,” and The National Law Journal named her as one of the “50 Most Influential Women Lawyers in America” and also one of the “Elite Women of the Plaintiffs’ Bar.”
