We are proud to announce that The National Law Journal has named Lieff Cabraser partner Dean M. Harvey to its fourth annual list of “Employment Law Trailblazers.” Dean is one of only 28 employment lawyers in the U.S. to make the list. The award recognizes employment lawyers who are “true agents of change.”
The NLJ’s profile on Dean highlights his groundbreaking work in the High-Tech Antitrust class action on behalf of a nationwide class of over 64,000 high-tech workers who claimed that Google, Apple, Intel and other tech giants conspired to suppress the mobility and compensation of their technical employees. When discussing key elements of the lawsuit, Dean noted, “There were many novel and difficult issues in applying the antitrust laws to this employment context.” This landmark case resulted in the largest recovery (by far) of any class action asserting antitrust claims in the employment context: $435 million.

Congratulations to Dean on this outstanding accomplishment!
