Washington, D.C. (July 7, 2016) --- For the seventh consecutive year, The Legal 500 has selected Hausfeld as a first tier firm in the United States in the category of Antitrust.

Published for over twenty years, the Legal 500-United States Guide analyzes the capabilities of law firms across the country and ranks firms and attorneys based on expertise, strengths, and strategies. Rankings are determined by independent research, opinions of the firm from attorneys and their clients, and a thorough examination of how the firm handles contentious issues. 

Writing about Hausfeld, the Legal 500 stated:

"Plaintiff firm Hausfeld stands out for its ‘ability to provide worldwide solutions’, leveraging its network of offices across the US and in Europe. The Washington DC office houses the majority of its 16 US partners and it is from here that the firm leads many of its high-profile cases. Michael Hausfeld, a ‘mastermind of strategy’, serves as co-lead counsel in an alleged LIBOR manipulation suit, while Brian Ratner, who is ‘proactive and knowledgeable’, is representing - alongside lawyers from the London office - a number of businesses, including Inditex Group and Hertz Europe, in proceedings against MasterCard Europe relating to unlawful interchange fees imposed by the credit card company. In San Francisco, Megan Jones has ‘superior knowledge in the area of eDiscovery’. Scott Martin, who ‘can swing the litigation sword against the best of law firms’, joined in July 2015 to open the New York office."
