Benchmark Litigation lauds Hausfeld as a 'plaintiff-side firm to be reckoned with'
We are proud to announce that Benchmark Litigation has highlighted Hausfeld as a leader in the domain of dispute resolution, recognizing the firm at the national level, as well as regionally on both coasts. Hausfeld was ranked by Benchmark for Antitrust/Competition Nationwide, and is one of only a small handful of plaintiff-side firms on the list. Hausfeld was also honored as a ‘Recommended Top Plaintiff Firm’ Nationwide, and described by the publication as“an undisputed trailblazer, identified as a ubiquitous presence by peers on both the plaintiff and defense sides of the ‘V’.” A peer on the defense side commented to the publication that Hausfeld is always in mix among antitrust and sports matters, “at least in the biggest and best cases.” Further to Hausfeld’s national recognitions, Benchmark recognized several individuals in the firm’s San Francisco and Washington, DC offices.
Among the San Francisco team, Partner Megan Jones, and Partner and Antitrust Practice Co-Chair Bonny Sweeney were singled out for their excellence in the area of antitrust/competition, both honored as ‘California Litigation Stars,' and ‘Local Litigation Stars.’ Megan was identified by several peers as “a leader at Hausfeld,” while Bonny was further commended for her work in sports and entertainment law, consumer protection, and pro bono matters.
In Washington, D.C., firm Founder and Chair Michael Hausfeld was honored as a ‘National Practice Area Star,’ as well as a ‘Local Litigation Star,’ and is described as “the name partner who entrepreneurially built his firm into a zealous plaintiff empire.” Also in D.C., Partner Hilary Scherrer was honored as a ‘Local Litigation Star,’ and, like Michael, recognized for her work in the competition/antitrust, commercial, and securities arenas.
The national section of the Benchmark Litigation guide identifies select firms and attorneys who have displayed the ability to consistently handle complex, high-stakes cases in multiple jurisdictions. These selections are consistently recommended within the United States business and legal communities for the quality of their litigation professionals and trial work. The list of ‘Local Litigation Stars’ for each state reflects only those individuals who were recommended consistently as reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers.
