The 2024 Elite Trial Lawyers Awards recognize law firms’ outstanding plaintiffs work in a high-stakes bench or jury trial or in a major settlement. The winners must have scored a significant win during the contest period and must also be able to show an impressive track record of wins over the last three to five years.

Hausfeld has been among other peer firms shortlisted in the following categories:

  • Antitrust
  • Class Action
  • Diversity Initiatives
  • Privacy/Data Breach

Hausfeld is also pleased to have Renner K. Walker be honored as a Rising Stars of the Plaintiffs Bar winner.

Renner has represented clients in federal, state, and administrative courts across the country. He represents individuals, governments, and businesses seeking justice. Some of his current and former clients include farmers who were sold defective crop treatments, whistleblowers who warn of dangerous products and fraudulent practices, children who were poisoned by lead in drinking water, workers harmed by defective products, and state administrative agencies responsible for protecting the environment and public health.
