Jeanette Bayoumi is an associate at Hausfeld’s New York office. Her decision to join Hausfeld’s team of lawyers was based on the internationally renowned litigation work that the firm does for clients ranging from those affected by social injustices to those harmed by economic disparities. Jeanette is currently working on a variety of cases, including Axiom Investment Advisors, LLC v. Deutsche Bank AG, Alpari (US), LLC v. BNP Paribas, S.A., Alpari (US), LLC v. Credit Suisse Group AG; Credit Suisse AG; and Credit Suisse Securities (USA), LLC, and Alpari v Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC and RBS Securities, Inc.—a series of class action lawsuits alleging that plaintiffs in the foreign exchange market were harmed by various market makers in their practice of reneging on orders placed on electronic trading platforms. Jeanette is also a member of the Suffolk County Water Authority v. The Dow Chemical Company et al., 17-6980 (E.D.N.Y.) and Suffolk County Water Authority v. The 3M Company et al., 17-6982 (E.D.N.Y.) case teams. Filed against the manufacturers of toxic chemicals that have polluted the Authority’s public supply wells, these water contamination cases allege that the defendants, who knew or should have known of the environmental risks of their defectively-designed products, must bear responsibility for the costs of treating the contaminated water and protecting the public from harm.
Prior to joining Hausfeld, Jeanette worked at the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, where she strove to protect investors trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market and the New York Stock Exchange. During this time, she gained extensive experience in the fields of securities law and securities regulation. Preceding this work, Jeanette was part of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Honor’s Program, where she worked with the Office of International Affairs, aiding attorneys on international and securities related issues.
While in law school, Jeanette was a member of the American University International Law Review. She was exposed to antitrust and litigation work during her summers in law school where she spent one summer clerking with a Turkish law firm, based in Istanbul, Turkey, analyzing current issues in international competition law from both U.S. and E.U. standpoints, and another summer working at a D.C.-based law firm on various litigation matters. Moreover, Jeanette represented clients on immigration issues and property matters as part of American University’s Women and the Law Clinic. She also worked with the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law’s Initiative for Human Rights in Business, where she analyzed the impact of human rights dynamics on businesses and investments.
In her free time, Jeanette enjoys painting, and she has exhibited her work at multiple exhibitions. Coming from an international background, and being fluent in Arabic and proficient in French, Jeanette loves to travel and explore new cultures and languages.
