Hausfeld is a leading specialist law firm experienced in managing complex commercial disputes with a particular expertise in competition & antitrust, financial & banking, consumer and human rights law.
We pioneered the private enforcement of competition law in Europe. Our lawyers help clients negotiate complex settlements, recovering billions of dollars/euros.
The firm is well-known for its entrepreneurial and innovative approach to dispute resolution. We were one of the first law firms to offer flexible fee structures and to actively use third party funding as part of the litigation strategy. Other features include fewer conflicts - compared to larger commercial firms, strong corporate claimant side work - and market-leading expertise in group actions.
Hausfeld lawyers have achieved many precedent-setting legal decisions and settlements on behalf of clients involved in complex cases worldwide.
The team is shortlisted for and wins prestigious awards on a regular basis; we hereby think of the FT Innovative Lawyer Awards 2018. Many of our lawyers are ranked by leading directories as leaders in their field.
Our 11 offices, including 6 in Europe, are fully integrated and operate internationally as one. It means we can prosecute matters in jurisdictions that suit the client best.
