United States: Antitrust

Civil litigation/class actions
Civil litigation/class actions - ranked: tier 1


Hausfeld, which ‘commits extensive resources to the most difficult cases’, is widely hailed as one of the few market-leading plaintiff firms. Michael Hausfeld, who is ‘the unquestionable dean of the antitrust bar’, is working with William Butterfield, Reena Gambhir and Timothy Kearns, among others, as co-lead counsel to a putative class of investors in a lawsuit alleging a conspiracy by various global banks to fix prices and manipulate key benchmark rates in the foreign exchange market. The firm also acted as co-lead counsel to a proposed class of freight shippers in a case involving an alleged rail freight services price-fixing conspiracy. ‘Young star’ Sathya Gosselin, who ‘works on the most complex cases brilliantly’ is recommended, as are Megan Jones (San Francisco), Brian Ratner, Melinda Coolidge and Hilary Scherrer. Named lawyers are based in Washington DC except where otherwise indicated.
