Lieff Cabraser’s Antitrust Practice Group Receives Top National Ranking from Chambers USA


The 2014 Chambers USA Guide has awarded Lieff Cabraser’s antitrust practice group with a Nationwide Band 1 ranking. Chambers noted the breadth of prominent cases our antitrust attorneys handle, highlighting the class action lawsuit against Silicon Valley tech giants Apple, Google, Intel and other companies for allegedly conspiring to suppress the pay of technical, creative, and other salaried employees.

Chambers selects practice groups based on thousands of interviews with practicing lawyers and clients. Practice groups are ranked by placement in "bands," with Band 1 being the highest. The qualities which Chambers assesses in ranking law firms include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, and diligence.

"We are honored to be selected as one of the top plaintiffs’ antitrust practice groups in the country," stated Eric B. Fastiff, the chair of Lieff Cabraser’s antitrust practice group. "Our lawyers are committed to recovering money for their clients from companies that have abused fixed prices, abused their monopoly power, stolen intellectual property, or conspired to restrain trade. As appropriate, we tailor our staffing by matching our antitrust attorneys with certain of our firm’s other attorneys who have special legal skills, providing a unique and powerful tool for our clients."

With offices in San Francisco, New York, and Nashville, Lieff Cabraser possesses a diversified practice, successfully representing plaintiffs nationwide in the fields of antitrust and intellectual property, consumer protection, defective products, employment discrimination and unlawful employment practices, environmental and toxic exposure, False Claims Act, personal injury and mass torts, and securities and financial fraud. Our clients include public and private entities, individuals, and classes or groups of persons.

Our antitrust attorneys are at the forefront of innovative and landmark cases promoting fair competition in the marketplace and protecting intellectual property. We assist companies, governments, consumers, inventors, and employees affected by anticompetitive conduct determine whether and how to pursue legal action to achieve their goals.

The recognition by Chambers is one of three significant awards Lieff Cabraser’s antitrust practice group has received in recent years. In 2013, The Recorder recognized our antitrust lawyers as a finalist for its first ever California Antitrust Litigation Department of the Year Award.

The preceding year, the Daily Journal selected our antitrust practice group as one of the five top practice groups of leading California law firms, observing: "No matter the transgression, Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP will avenge it. Because of that tenacity, the firm’s antitrust practice group over the past 20 years has evolved into one of the most formidable in the state."
