Lieff Cabraser partner Dean M. Harvey will be a featured panelist at Berkeley Law’s 2022 Riesenfeld Symposium, Big Money, Big Enforcement: New Frontiers in Global Antitrust Regulation, to be held in-person on Tuesday, February 22, 2022. Dean will participate in a panel discussion on “Is Labor the Next Frontier of Antitrust?” where he will address the intersections between antitrust and labor law.
Berkeley Law’s annual Riesenfeld Symposium allows students, alumni, faculty, and staff to come together to recognize and celebrate achievement in international law. Each year, the Berkeley Journal of International Law presents the keynote speaker with the Stefan A. Riesenfeld Memorial Award, traditionally given to a distinguished scholar or practitioner who has made outstanding contributions to the field of international law. The purpose of the award is to honor the memory of Professor Stefan A. Riesenfeld ’37, who devoted much of his life and career to the study and practice of international law, and to recognize a recipient who has demonstrated a commitment to the values and ideas that Professor Riesenfeld espoused and advocated.
The 2022 Riesenfeld Symposium will provide a forum for both academic and practical discussion of global antitrust issues. The Symposium will gather noted scholars, policy makers and legal practitioners to discuss the issues and concerns that have arisen as a result of different approaches to antitrust policies.
This event will take place in-person at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law. Remote viewing is also available.
Registration is FREE. To register for in-person or remote viewing, visit the event website.

About Dean Harvey
A partner in Lieff Cabraser’s San Francisco office, Dean M. 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.
