About this office:

Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, is a sixty-plus attorney, AV-rated law firm founded in 1972 with offices in San Francisco, New York and Nashville. We have a diversified practice, successfully representing plaintiffs in the fields of personal injury and mass torts, securities and financial fraud, employment discrimination and unlawful employment practices, product defect, consumer protection, antitrust and intellectual property, environmental and toxic exposures, False Claims Act, and human rights. Our clients include individuals, classes or groups of persons, businesses, and public and private entities.

Lieff Cabraser has served as court-appointed Plaintiffs' Lead or Class Counsel in state and federal coordinated, multi-district, and complex litigation throughout the United States. With co-counsel, we have represented clients across the globe in cases filed in American courts.

Lieff Cabraser is among the largest firms in the United States that only represent plaintiffs. Described by The American Lawyer as “one of the nation's premier plaintiffs' firms,” Lieff Cabraser enjoys a national reputation for professional integrity and the successful prosecution of our clients' claims. We possess sophisticated legal skills and the financial resources necessary for the handling of large, complex cases, and for litigating against some of the nation's largest corporations. We take great pride in the leadership roles our firm plays in many of this country's major cases, including those resulting in landmark decisions and precedent-setting rulings.

Lieff Cabraser has litigated and resolved thousands of individual lawsuits and hundreds of class and group actions, including some of the most important civil cases in the United States over the past three decades. We have assisted our clients recover over $91 billion in verdicts and settlements. Twenty-two cases were resolved for over $1 billion; another 37 cases resulted in verdicts or settlements at or in excess of $100 million.

The National Law Journal has recognized Lieff Cabraser as one of the nation's top plaintiffs' law firms for eleven years and we are a member of its Plaintiffs' Hot List Hall of Fame. In compiling the list, The National Law Journal examines recent verdicts and settlements and looked for firms “representing the best qualities of the plaintiffs' bar and that demonstrated unusual dedication and creativity.”
