Law360 has published an in-depth profile on Lieff Cabraser’s Employment Law practice group as part of its recognition of the firm as a 2022 Employment Law Group of the Year. Law360’s piece highlights Lieff Cabraser’s work advocating for thousands of clients in workers’ rights disputes, and garnering some impressive victories for its clients via that advocacy.
As noted by Daniel Hutchinson, a partner at Lieff Cabraser and Chair of the firm’s Employment Law practice group, the social justice components of the firm’s cases are a main driver for the team.
“Being able to work on cases that we feel passionate about, that we believe will contribute to a greater good, really gets us up every morning and excited about working on these cases,” Hutchinson notes.
Law360 also highlights some of Lieff Cabraser’s biggest accomplishments from the past year including securing a $118 million settlement with Google in a gender bias suit alleging it engaged in systemic and pervasive pay and promotion discrimination against its female employees.
In addition to the Google settlement, Lieff Cabraser secured an $11.5 million settlement in a race bias suit against Kaiser Permanente.
Hutchinson highlighted the practice group’s “team effort” when prosecuting these plaintiffs-side cases. Lieff Cabraser partner Kelly Dermody, chair emeritus of the practice group, seconded Hutchinson’s comments, saying the team is “committed to making sure their time on the planet makes things better.”
Dermody remarked that it was “amazing to work with colleagues who are thoroughly invested in the mission of what we do.”
