The award was for the firm’s work with Dutch transportation insurer Transport Verzekerings Maatschappij (TVM). Hausfeld, in conjunction with Transport en Logistiek Nederland (TLN) the leading truck trade association in the Netherlands, approached TVM to fund a mass claim by truck owners against manufacturers after the announcement of European Commission cartel fines for price-fixing.
Paris and Brussels Managing Partner, Laurent Geelhand, was personally commended for his role in the deal.
