Hausfeld London is pleased to have kickstarted 2021 on a positive note with several exciting team updates and recognition.
We welcomed partner Ned Beale from Trowers and Hamlins where he was a senior partner specialised in complex, high value commercial disputes and led the firm’s international arbitration team. He joins Hausfeld to broaden the firm’s commercial disputes and international arbitration offering. Ned is joined by of counsel, Olena Gulyanytska, who focuses predominantly on arbitration with an international dimension – particularly on matters across Europe and the US. The pair have worked together for several years on many high-profile cases and we look forward to the new instructions to come as a result of their recruitment.
Excellence was also recognised within the current team as we promoted Luke Streatfeild and Lucy Rigby from counsel to partner – both competition litigation specialists who have acted on some of the largest and most complex competition litigation matters in recent years. Amandine Gueret, who has a particular focus on competition damages litigation, and Eliza Buchanan, who has a diverse practice encompassing both competition and commercial litigation, were promoted from associate to senior associate. These promotions are a real testament to the commitment and hard work each individual has shown in recent years.
Partner and head of commercial disputes, Lianne Craig, was recognised in The Lawyer Hot 100 2021 on 25th January. The Hot 100 lauds the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers of the previous 12 months, comprising legal experts from in-house, private practice and the Bar and we are proud to see Lianne listed amongst some of the best names in the industry. Lianne was recognised for her role in growing the profile of the firm in the commercial disputes market and for reinforcing the firm’s foothold in Europe by spearheading growth in Spain. The highlight of these efforts has been the launch of a high profile collaboration with Spanish firm Eskariam, notably on the Spanish Milk Cartel case. Lianne has also been a driving force behind significant growth in our environmental and climate change practice over recent months.
If the above is a sign of things to come, we have an exciting 12 months in store for the team. We look forward to sharing more developments with the Chamber throughout the course of this year.”
