In the new category Group Litigation, Hausfeld is ranked in Tier 1 as “a market leader” and “the number one claimant group litigation practice on this side of the Atlantic. First to the market and have never looked back. Real commitment to this area, and outstandingly strong lawyers at partnership level and below.”

“The team at Hausfeld’s Dispute Resolution-Commercial Litigation practice are focused on goal achievement while always maintaining the highest degrees of sensitivity, empathy and humanity to its legal solutions and client management. Beyond their impeccable ethics and apex legal knowledge, they are reliably creative and fearless when it comes to legal strategy and tactics. They are collaborative when appropriate and always transparent.”

The arbitration team raised a tier in the rankings and "... is very focused, efficient and on the ball. It’s very impressive indeed.”

The Civil Liberties and Human Rights practice is described as “demonstrating strength in depth which is a match for any other firm in this sector and which delivers real ooomph power when it gets to the crunch. I never doubt their ability to deliver.”

“The [Environment] team is very good. They have shown a major commitment to strategic environmental litigation by acting pro bono for various NGOs in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court in long-running litigations.”

Many congratulations to the team and a special thank you to all our clients and referees for the time they took to partake in the research.
