Brian A. Ratner Named a 2024 Lawdragon Legend

Lawdragon has named Brian A. Ratner, Hausfeld’s Global Co-Chair and partner in Washington, D.C., to its prestigious list of Lawdragon Legends for 2024. Lawdragon explains “[t]he 2024 Lawdragon Legends are a…class of 33 of the nation’s finest lawyers, overflowing with inspiring accomplishments from coast to coast.”

The lawyers recognized this year as “Legends” have formed new firms and built them to great heights, carved elite Supreme Court practices, reached the pinnacle of lawyering in the White House, forged new pathways for women and minorities, and crafted new leadership styles at the nation’s most powerful law firms.

Brian is a founding partner of Hausfeld and serves as Global Co-Chair of the firm. He has extensive experience representing U.S. and international businesses in complex litigation at the trial and appellate levels. He is particularly experienced in litigating and resolving antitrust claims in U.S. and European courts, recovering billions of dollars for his corporate clients and the classes he has represented. Brian’s broad global experience demonstrates his ability to tackle and find solutions for the most novel legal issues, as well as represent his clients at all stages of global antitrust litigation and other complex business disputes, whether in the discovery, damages, trial, appeal or settlement phase, or whether in the U.S., Europe, or globally. This unique combination enables him to counsel and act for clients comprehensively, in a commercially sensitive manner, and wherever necessary.

Brian represents clients from a wide range of sectors, including automotive, retail, transportation, petroleum, utility, pharma, financial services, and technology. Brian currently represents or has represented purchasers of auto parts, rail freight, maritime car carrier services, air freight services, carbon graphite, polyurethane foam, paraffin wax, marine hose, Visa/MasterCard services, trucks, power cables, elevators, and pre-stressing steel in their individual cartel damage claims in the US, Europe and/or globally. In the marine hose matter, on behalf of a group of oil and gas companies, he led the negotiations with cartelist Parker ITR which produced a first of its kind private global settlement agreement.

The Lawdragon Legends are comprised of lawyers who have been recognized with the Lawdragon 500 distinction repeatedly, typically 10 times or more. As a group, they embody what Lawdragon believes is the best a lawyer can be. Hausfeld takes great pride in Brian’s recognition on this distinguished list.
