About Kevin Budner
A partner in Lieff Cabraser’s San Francisco office, Kevin Budner specializes in consumer protection and personal injury law. His successes at the firm include representing vehicle owners in the Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” multidistrict litigation, in which plaintiffs allege that Volkswagen intentionally and systematically cheated its customers, lied to the government, and misled the public about the emissions of its diesel engine vehicles. The Court granted final approval to a partial class settlement worth $10.03 billion in 2016, and a second partial class settlement valued at between $1.2 billion and $4.1 billion in 2017. The team won the California Daily Journal’s “California Lawyer of the Year” award, was honored as finalists by the Consumer Attorneys of California for their prestigious Consumer Attorney of the Year award, and continues to prosecute claims under the Lanham Act on behalf of competitor dealerships that allege they lost sales as a result of Volkswagen’s fraud.
Kevin also helped secure settlements for dozens of personal injury and wrongful death victims related to the General Motors Ignition Switch Defect and the Medtronic Infuse litigation.
