SAN FRANCISCO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--In its annual comprehensive review of the leading law firms in the nation, U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers has recognized Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, for the fourth consecutive year as a national “Law Firm of the Year.” The firm received the award in the category of Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions – Plaintiffs.
“11 firms have stood above the rest in recent years by launching headline-grabbing suits, winning landmark decisions, and brokering mammoth settlements, earning them a spot on Law360's inaugural list of Most Feared Plaintiffs’ Firms.”
“Achieving justice for our clients and a strong, principled sense of social responsibility have been the defining characteristics of Lieff Cabraser since our founding in 1972,” stated Lieff Cabraser Managing Partner Steven E. Fineman. “We are proud to be recognized again by U.S. News and Best Lawyers as its ‘Law Firm of the Year’ for our work safeguarding the rights of the injured.”
"Our clients come to us after having experienced terrible, catastrophic injuries and tragic events in their families as a result of the wrongful conduct of another person or multinational corporation,” stated Lieff Cabraser partner Wendy R. Fleishman, who has served in numerous leadership roles in national mass tort cases in federal and state courts. “We are energetic, inspired, and passionate in helping our clients and committed to excellent representation.”
The 2014 Law Firm of the Year award closely follows three other significant awards Lieff Cabraser has received.
In October, for the eleventh consecutive year, The National Law Journal named Lieff Cabraser to the annual Plaintiffs’ Hot List. The National Law Journal observed, “If it's high-profile, high-dollar mass torts and class actions, it's a good bet that Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein is on the case.”
Lieff Cabraser is one of only two law firms in the nation to be recognized each year by The National Law Journal for the Plaintiffs’ Hot List award since 2003.
Also last month, Law360 selected Lieff Cabraser as one of the “Most Feared Plaintiffs’ Firms” in the nation. “Amid fierce competition in the plaintiffs’ bar,” Law360 stated, “11 firms have stood above the rest in recent years by launching headline-grabbing suits, winning landmark decisions, and brokering mammoth settlements, earning them a spot on Law360's inaugural list of Most Feared Plaintiffs’ Firms.”
Finally, The Recorder recently named Lieff Cabraser as a finalist for its 2013 California Litigation Department of the Year award. The Recorder specifically recognized our antitrust group, which was named as a finalist for California Antitrust Department of the Year.
