November 19, 2015 (Washington, DC) – At the 9th Annual Private Antitrust Enforcement Conference and Awards Dinner, held in Washington, DC, on November 18, 2015, Hausfeld and fellow trial counsel received the American Antitrust Institute’s award for Outstanding Antitrust Litigation Achievement in Private Law Practice for their trial and appellate victories in O’Bannon v. NCAA.  

The criteria for the annual award includes (1) the benefits realized by clients, consumers, or class members and (2) the positive development of antitrust policy.  Partner Sathya Gosselin commented, “this award is a real honor---recognition from antitrust scholars and practitioners for six years of tireless work on behalf of a class of current and former college athletes, which will bring increased benefits to college athletes in recognition of the commercial licensing of their names, images, and likenesses by the universities.”

Earlier in the day, partners Brent Landau and Sathya Gosselin presented on conference panels addressing, respectively, “Class Action Ethics in Antitrust Cases” and “Developments in Antitrust Cases Against Sports Leagues.”

Hausfeld attorneys who contributed to the O’Bannon v. NCAA victory include Michael Hausfeld, Michael Lehmann, Hilary Scherrer, Sathya Gosselin, Bonny Sweeney, Bruce Wecker, and Swathi Bojedla.
