Washington (PRWEB) October 7, 2010
Founded in November 2008, Hausfeld LLP has officially arrived. In one week, Hausfeld LLP was named to THE NATIONAL LAW JOURNAL’S “Plaintiffs’ Hot List,” as well as garnering a mention in the United Kingdom’s LEGAL 500 for Competition firms. Law firms were chosen for the National Law Journal’s "Hot List" based on cases that produced substantial verdicts or settlements between the summers of 2009 and 2010. "Our conclusions are subjective, but show the plaintiffs' bar at its best," the NATIONAL LAW JOURNAL said in its Oct. 4 issue. “In the past 12 months, these firms have done exemplary, cutting-edge work on the plaintiffs' side,” the NATIONAL LAW JOURNAL also noted. About Hausfeld LLP, the NATIONAL LAW JOURNAL said, “Since its inception in 2008, 23-attorney Hausfeld has quickly positioned itself as a leader in antitrust and class action litigation. Washington-based Chairman Michael Hausfeld's firm has established new frontiers for plaintiffs' legal recovery, while pursuing global cartels and representing victims of apartheid.”
Megan Jones, Partner, told the NATIONAL LAW JOURNAL that “No other Plaintiffs’ law firm can tout as many current leadership positions in antitrust class actions as Hausfeld LLP. Federal courts have chosen the firm to be lead or co-lead counsel in over thirty (30) cases since its inception in November 2008. Hausfeld LLP has begun to see the fruits of those positions, garnering settlements and verdicts of approximately $300 million during the 12 month period of August 2009-August 2010. These results are even more impressive when one realizes that seven out of the firm’s 13 partners are under age 40.”
The NATIONAL LAW JOURNAL featured three of Firm’s recent successes and featured lead attorneys on those cases:
- In re Air Cargo Antitrust Litigation (Michael Hausfeld, Brent Landau, William Butterfield, Hilary Scherrer);
- In Re Egg Products Antitrust Litigation (Michael Hausfeld, Michael Lehmann, Megan Jones, James Pizzirusso); and
- In re Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer Antitrust Litigation (Michael Hausfeld, Megan Jones, Brent Landau).
Hausfeld LLP was also mentioned in the United Kingdom’s LEGAL 500 for Competition firms. There, in the company of Magic Circle firms, LEGAL 500 advised that “Readers should also note that Hausfeld & Co LLP is making considerable headway in relation to plaintiff follow-on damages actions.”
The Hausfeld firm is currently pursuing six follow-on cartel damages actions in the London courts on behalf of hundreds of corporate clients located on multiple continents, including several among the Fortune Global 500, Forbes Global 2000, and Business Week and Interbrand 100 Best Global Brands.
Hausfeld’s intellectual and capital investments have resulted in groundbreaking settlements for the benefit of non-US claimants, including: Air Passenger ($200 million first-ever transatlantic settlement with BA/Virgin Atlantic for the benefit of U.S. and non-U.S. claimants); and Marine Hose (landmark global settlement with cartelist Parker ITR representing the first private resolution of a company’s worldwide cartel liability without any arbitration, mediation or litigation).
