Hollis Salzman passed away following an automobile accident in New York on Oct. 3.
One of the nation’s leading antitrust litigators, Salzman was also the New York managing partner of Robins Kaplan, co-chair of its Antitrust and Trade Regulation practice, and a member of the firm’s Executive Board.
“Hollis Salzman was exemplary in every way. She was dedicated to her family and community, and was a truly incredible advocate for her clients,” Ronald J. Schutz, chair of the firm’s Executive Board said in a statement. “She was our treasured partner, colleague, and friend. We miss her terribly, but her irrepressible spirit will inspire us for many years to come.”
In her antitrust work, she recovered more than $2B from cartel and other unfair trade practices in the air shipping and auto parts industries, among many others.
She was an inspiring leader for women, making her voice known among attorneys selected to lead class actions.
She is survived by her children, Willa and Finn. Her husband, David Barry, died in 2019.
