Lieff Cabraser partners William Bernstein, Eric Fastiff, Brendan Glackin, and Dean Harvey have been listed as experts in the Global Competition Review’s “2016 Who’s Who Legal Guide” in the Competition/Antitrust category.

Who’s Who Legal has identified and publicized the most notable legal practitioners in business law since 1996. As noted on their website, Who’s Who Legal includes more than 17,000 of the world’s leading private practice lawyers from over 100 national jurisdictions. Lieff Cabraser is the only plaintiffs’ firm in California with four attorneys listed in the competition and antitrust practice area. With only 19 attorneys in total listed for the state, our firm comprises more than 20% of the practitioners chosen statewide.

The Who’s Who Legal guide serves as an efficient way to find an effective lawyer and to minimize expenses and risks due to poor counsel. The analysis and conclusions in Who’s Who Legal publications and website are based on the independent work of London-based publishing group Law Business Research.
