Washington DC firm Hausfeld is a 'market transformer', and the 'most innovative firm with respect to antitrust damages'. 'Driven by excellence', the team 'anticipates the evolving needs of clients' and delivers 'outstanding advice not only in legal terms but also with a true entrepreneurial touch'.
