The Lawyer recognises Lianne Craig in the 2021 Hot 100 Lawyers list
The Lawyer has today announced its Hot 100 list for 2021, recognising London Partner and Head of Commercial Disputes, Lianne Craig.
The Hot 100 lauds the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers of the previous 12 months, comprising legal experts from in-house, private practice and the Bar and we are proud to see Lianne listed amongst some of the best names in the industry.
This worthy recognition particularly stems from Lianne’s efforts in successfully developing the firm’s reputation for commercial litigation, growing the team both in terms of head count and adding significant new instructions to the practice, since her appointment as Head of Commercial Disputes at the end of 2019. Over the same period, Lianne has also reinforced Hausfeld’s foothold in Europe by spearheading the firm’s growth in Spain. The highlight of these efforts has been the launch of a high profile collaboration with Spanish firm Eskariam, notably on the Spanish Milk Cartel case.
Lianne has also been a driving force behind significant growth in our environmental and climate change practice, taking on a number of major instructions for new clients. She continues to play a key role in our management team, and has been helping to navigate the firm through the pandemic while mentoring junior lawyers, keeping everyone in high spirits and looking after her two young daughters.
This acknowledgment is a real testament to Lianne’s commitment, not only to Hausfeld and the team, but also to the profession. With many thanks to The Lawyer and congratulations to all individuals mentioned.
