Hausfeld further expands leading London competition litigation practice with addition of seasoned claimant-side litigator
Hausfeld is pleased to announce that Scott Campbell will be re-joining the firm in its London office as of 2 May 2017. At Hausfeld, Scott’s focus will be the firm’s competition litigation practice, bringing his significant experience in multi-party litigation.
Scott, one of the first lawyers to join Hausfeld when the firm opened in Europe in 2009, re-joins from Stewarts Law, which he joined as a Partner in March 2012. Scott’s extensive competition litigation expertise includes advising on complex competition and commercial litigation matters in the English High Court, Court of Appeal and Competition Appeal Tribunal.
Scott has played leading roles on claims arising out of the Air Cargo cartel and Interchange Fees, described by a number of publications as two of the biggest damages actions in Europe arising out of anticompetitive behaviour. He has also advised clients in the context of numerous other cartel investigations and follow-on claims, including Refrigeration Compressors, LCDs, CRTs, Elevators and Escalators and Marine Hose.
Anthony Maton, Managing Partner of Hausfeld London, said: “I’m delighted to welcome back Scott to the Hausfeld family. Scott’s addition will further bolster our team of competition litigators and Hausfeld’s unique position as the go-to firm for claimants in the UK and Europe”.
Michael Hausfeld, Chairman of Hausfeld, said: “Scott has distinguished himself in our core business of competition litigation as we always knew he could and would. We are excited he is returning and know he will make invaluable contributions to our market-leading practice.”
Scott is widely recognised by legal directories as one of the leading competition litigators in the UK. A graduate in Modern History at the University of St Andrews (M.A. (Hons) & M.Lit), Scott went on to BPP Law School and then to King’s College London where he obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in EU Competition Law. Earlier in his career, Scott worked at Norton Rose in both London and Brussels and Latham & Watkins in London.
Scott added: “I am very pleased to return to Hausfeld. Over the last few years, the firm has distinguished itself as the leading player in relation to competition disputes in Europe. It feels great to come back home and continue to seek redress on behalf of victims of anticompetitive behaviour across Europe and beyond.”
Scott’s arrival brings the European partnership head count to 11 and comes at the same time the firm announces new associates into its London team. Charles Laporte-Bisquit qualified within the firm.
