As part of its “Legal 500 Awards,” the UK-based publication Legal 500 recently named Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, as its U.S. Mass Torts and Class Action Plaintiffs’ Law Firm of the Year for 2014. The Legal 500 awards honor the best practice teams in the U.S., as determined by Legal 500 from thousands of lawyer interviews.
“We are honored to be selected by Legal 500 in its inaugural listing of the most distinguished U.S. law firms for our mass torts and class action practice,” stated Lieff Cabraser Managing Partner Steven E. Fineman. “For over forty years, achieving justice for our clients through principled, exceptional advocacy has been the hallmark of our law firm.”
“We help people stand up for themselves – and each other – to use our courts to protect civil rights and achieve economic justice. We are proud to have served in leadership roles in many of the largest, most significant defective product, mass injury, consumer fraud, and environmental disaster cases in the U.S.,” stated Elizabeth J. Cabraser, the chair of Lieff Cabraser’s mass torts practice group and regarded as one of the nation’s leading authorities on class action law and procedure.
“Our mass tort clients come to us after experiencing tragic, painful events as a result of the wrongful conduct of another person or a corporation,” stated New York-based Lieff Cabraser partner Wendy R. Fleishman, who has served in numerous leadership roles in national mass torts cases in federal and state courts. “We are energetic, inspired, and passionate in helping our clients hold accountable those responsible for their injuries and in helping others to avoid suffering similar injuries.”
In addition to the law firm award, Legal 500 recognized Lieff Cabraser’s employment, personal injury and mass torts, and antitrust and intellectual property practice groups with national practice area awards.
