New York attorney Kathleen Konopka has joined the New York City office of law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein as Of Counsel. Konopka comes to the firm from the New York State Attorney General’s office, where she served as Senior Enforcement Counsel of the Social Justice Division, supervising six bureaus of the NY AG’s office, leading the investigation and litigation of complex civil matters as well as providing advice and mentorship to other attorneys.

Konopka came to the New York AG’s office after serving six years as a Senior Litigator in the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ) in Washington, DC, where she specialized in the investigation and litigation of complex cartel, fraud, and merger matters. At the DOJ, she regularly led large teams of attorneys, economists, and support professionals, providing briefings to division leadership, and negotiating settlements, consent decrees, and plea agreements on behalf of the United States.

“We are excited to have a lawyer of Kate’s caliber and reputation joining our team,” noted Eric Fastiff, Chair of the firm’s Antitrust, Intellectual Property, and Commercial Litigation practice group. “Kate brings a wealth of experience in the litigation of healthcare and fraud matters, as well as significant trial experience that will serve the firm’s clients exceedingly well.”
