Hausfeld ‘stands at the pinnacle of the market’ maintaining its Tier 1 competition litigation ranking for the 10th consecutive year with a ‘host of exceptional partners‘ and being described as ‘the absolute leader in this field’. ‘The competition litigation landscape in the UK has never been busier, and Hausfeld’s entrepreneurialism, bravery and ability to work collaboratively with key players in the field (counsel, experts, funders, other firms, and opponents) has been a key factor’.
The commercial litigation practice is acknowledged as having ‘an impressive ability to deliver results for clients on even the most difficult of cases’ with ‘a very well trained and educated team, with excellent leadership from partners’, while the international arbitration team is ‘strong on litigation strategy and methodical’.
Hausfeld's banking litigation team is described as a ‘great and close-knit unit of ex-City partners with banking experience now deployed in a crack squad to assist the investor and borrower community’. It stands out for being conflict free and able to act against major financial institutions on behalf of claimants’. It also says the team ‘consistently produces work of the highest quality within short time frames’.
Hausfeld’s civil liberties and human rights practice is described as ‘going from strength to strength, alongside their other areas of expertise. With an eye on cutting-edge trans-national litigation strategies, with the public interest in mind, the firm is bringing its significant expertise in the group litigation and claimant sphere to bear on important issues’. A similar ethos is followed by the environment and product liability teams.
The team is also commended on its truly collaborative approach and concern for associates’ wellbeing and for letting associates flourish.
Many congratulations to the team and a special thank you to all our clients and referees for their ongoing support.
