property are essential to our nation's economic growth.
We level the playing field for our clients, holding

Antitrust & Intellectual Property
Protecting purchasers and sellers -- promoting fair competition.
The power of dominant corporations to fix prices, restrict supply, stifle innovation and harm smaller companies, entrepreneurs, governments, and consumers gave rise to the nation's first antitrust laws more than a century ago.
Bold advocates for competition
Lieff Cabraser is at the forefront of innovative and landmark cases promoting fair competition in the marketplace. We assist companies, governments, and consumers affected by anticompetitive conduct, assess market circumstances and determine whether and how to pursue legal action to achieve their goals.
In 2012, the Daily Journal selected our Antitrust practice group as one of the five top practice groups of leading California law firms, observing:
Successfully challenging cartels and monopolies
We have successfully challenged the world's largest corporations' cartels that set prices, restrict supply or manipulate customers; conspiracies among would-be competitors; monopolies; and other anti-competitive practices. The result: judgments and settlements in excess of $5.5 billion in antitrust cases in which our firm has had a leading role.
Our advice springs from a sophisticated understanding of the legal, economic and business issues related to antitrust cases. With a blend of courage, superior legal skills, and high principles, we protect our clients' interests and help them achieve their goals by winning highly-complex antitrust lawsuits against those that have abused market power to eliminate competition.
Knowledge across markets and industries
Our antitrust attorneys handle cases spanning the global economic spectrum. From software, pharmaceuticals, agricultural products, and industrial inputs to financial services and medical care, we draw on a deep reservoir of knowledge about the operational, marketing, economic and competitive issues relevant to these cases, along with our tested trial experience.
