Dean Harvey Moderates Panel on Competition Torts in the Trenches

Lieff Cabraser partner Dean M. Harvey will be moderating an American Bar Association panel discussion entitled “Competition Torts in the Trenches: Lessons From Recent High-Profile Cases.” The panel will take place on November 21, 2016 from 12:30-1:30pm ET.

Three leading competition tort practitioners will offer insights and advice from their headline-grabbing cases. The panelists will explain how to address and litigate conflicts among startup investors and senior management; how to structure sensitive international transactions so that NDAs don’t prevent suppliers from performing; and how to win a competition tort trial.

About Dean Harvey

A partner in Lieff Cabraser’s San Francisco office, Dean Harvey represents individuals and companies in antitrust, business tort, employment, and intellectual property litigation. His cases seek to remedy and prevent wrongful conduct by dominant firms. These precedent-setting lawsuits concern a wide variety of industries and markets. Remedies include reimbursing purchasers who have overpaid for price-fixed products; preventing monopolists from stifling innovation and eliminating competition; and obtaining damages for businesses, inventors, and copyright owners.

Mr. Harvey was a leader in the High-Tech Antitrust class action against Google, Apple, Intel and other tech giants for allegedly conspiring to suppress the mobility and compensation of their technical employees. This landmark case resulted in the largest recovery (by far) of any class action asserting antitrust claims in the employment context: $435 million. Mr. Harvey continues the fight to ensure that employees receive competitive compensation, currently representing a doctor in a class action alleging an unlawful no-hire agreement between the medical schools of Duke University and the University of North Carolina.
