Hausfeld lawyers have achieved many precedent-setting legal decisions and settlements on behalf of clients involved in complex cases worldwide. We have negotiated some of the world’s most complex settlement agreements and our lawyers have collectively recovered or obtained judgments in the billions of dollars on behalf of our clients. While settlements range from small to large, one thing remains consistent: our commitment to our clients’ satisfaction. We judge a successful resolution not merely by the amount, but also by the time it took to achieve the resolution, the costs incurred along the way, and the collateral damage we avoided or mitigated during the process.
Hausfeld was founded by Chairman Michael D. Hausfeld, who is widely recognized as one of the world's top civil litigators and negotiators. The National Law Journal has recognized him as one of the "Top 100 Influential Lawyers in America," the New York Times has referred to him as one of the nation's "most prominent antitrust lawyers," and Washingtonian magazine has stated that he is "a Washington lawyer determined to change the world – and succeeding." Most recently, Michael was listed as a top legal "visionary" by the Legal Times along with Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia, and Attorney General Eric Holder, Jr.
