Hausfeld & Co LLP

Hausfeld & Co LLP is 'experienced and capable and creates a strong team with counsel and experts'. It has developed from being a specialist competition litigation firm, to a broader boutique commercial litigation practice that regularly litigates high-profile financial services disputes on behalf of claimants. The team recently advised on complex loan financing, derivatives transactions and wider banking misconduct, as well as claims arising out of LIBOR, FOREX and other benchmark manipulations in the financial markets. It acted for Stuart Wall, who alleged that RBS caused the failure of his student accommodation business, Opal Property Group; the allegations included RBS’ involvement in LIBOR rigging and the actions of its global restructuring group. Anthony Maton is managing partner of the London office; Lianne Craig is 'superb and able to project manage and implement strategy on the largest of claims'; John McElroy 'has demonstrated himself to be a key individual, who is able to effectively work with others in the team and is adroit at balancing detail with an overview of objectives'; and senior associate David Lawne 'shows notable skills and experience in the area of banking litigation and he is switched on and easy to deal with'.

For some, Hausfeld & Co LLP is the 'best' claimant firm in the market, leading in claim funding and specialising in European damages claims. In addition to a London office comprising experienced competition litigators, the firm has built a strong network across the EU, which it is able to leverage in multi-jurisdictional claims. The practice is led by the 'commercially aware' Anthony Maton, who is acting alongside the 'deeply experienced' Scott Campbell for Veolia, Suez and Wolsley before the English High Court and the Dutch Transport Association in the Netherlands in a major claim arising out of a cartel involving medium- and heavy-duty truck manufacturers. Laurent Geelhand and the 'first-class' Anna Morfey represented Groupe PSA and BMW in an automotive bearings cartel claim against various European and Japanese bearing manufacturers. Nicola Boyle has 'an excellent legal mind' and currently acts for a group of UK and European corporate clients in relation to claims against MasterCard and Visa pertaining to interchange fees. 'Great lawyer' Lesley Hannah is another key contact.
