Partner promotions

In Philadelphia, Katie Beran has been instrumental in driving forward antitrust, civil and human rights and environmental litigation. She currently represents a diverse range of clients, including cancer patients and other end payors of generic pharmaceuticals, the nation’s largest supplier of public drinking water and victims of data security breaches. Katie and the Philadelphia office were honored with the Philadelphia Bar Foundation's Pro Bono Award 2019.

In London, Tom Bolster is an integral part of Hausfeld’s antitrust recovery practice - the strongest in Europe. He has worked on a large number of anti-trust cases over the years but presently works with the firm’s automotive clients on recovering follow-on damages in a wide range of cartels. Legal Business Awards 2019 nominated Hausfeld as 'Competition Team of the Year', including Tom, for its innovative work in the Bearings cartel.

Other promotions

We are also pleased to announce that Lucy Rigby and Karl-Christoph von Steuben from the London and Berlin offices respectively, have been promoted to Counsel.

Lucy’s expertise in competition litigation, large-scale group actions and individual rights of redress has proven invaluable, particularly in the last 12 months as Hausfeld filed two collective actions under the new collective regime under the UK's Consumer Rights Act 2015. She previously worked in-house at Which?.

In Berlin, Karl-Christoph focuses on civil and competition litigation, being instrumental most recently in the Trucks litigation. He is also leading our business development efforts on certain cartel matters.

Commenting on the announcement, Global Managing Partner Brent W. Landau, said:

We are delighted by the promotion of these talented lawyers, reinforcing our strong market position as a leading global force when it comes to complex competition, commercial, mass tort, human rights, and environmental litigation on behalf of claimants worldwide.

Anthony Maton, Vice Chair and London Managing Partner, continued:

These four colleagues are among the bright future for our firm and we look forward to their ongoing contributions. With two collective actions filed in 2019 in the UK, Trains and FX Claim UK, much competition litigation activity and the commercial practice growing - the London office has also committed to recruit a further 6 associates across its competition, commercial and Human Rights & Environment practices to support anticipated growth."
