Once a Maryland schoolteacher, Roberta Liebenberg rose to prominence in the antitrust community and she’s followed that success by dedicating her life to research and advocacy for gender equality in the legal profession and beyond.

In her own opinion, Liebenberg views her visibility in the antitrust field as one of the main ways she has spurred change in her career. Playing a notable role as trial counsel for the plaintiff class in In re Urethane Antitrust Litigation, which secured a record settlement of over $1 billion for the plaintiffs, Liebenberg recalls “in that first status conference … it was just a sea of blue suits.”
