Lieff Cabraser Antitrust Team — National Recognition Year After Year
We have won recognition for 2020 from Best Lawyers and Legal 500 for our antitrust team’s groundbreaking work, and individual recognition from the National Law Journal and Law360 for practice group Chair Brendan P. Glackin as well as accolades from Legal 500 for “Next Generation Partners” Katherine Benson and Lin Chan.
In 2019, we won the American Antitrust Institute’s 2019 Outstanding Antitrust Litigation Achievement in Private Law Practice award for our work on the Duke/UNC Employee “No-Poach” litigation that led to a settlement valued at over $54 million and institutional changes at Duke and UNC for their hospitals’ employees. In 2017, we won the same award for our work on the seminal Cipro drug antitrust case that led to settlements of $399 million (exceeding plaintiffs’ damages estimate by approximately $68 million in a result the California Superior Court described as “extraordinary.”).
In 2016, we were named “Experts in Competition and Antitrust Law” by Global Competition Review. In 2013, The Recorder recognized our antitrust lawyers as finalists for its first ever California Antitrust Litigation Department of the Year Award.
In 2012, The Daily Journal selected our antitrust practice group as one of the top five practice groups of leading California law firms, observing:
“With De Beers, it was a monopoly on diamonds. With vitamin makers, price-fixing. No matter the transgression, Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP will avenge it. Because of that tenacity, the firm’s antitrust practice group over the past 20 years has evolved into one of the most formidable in the state.”
