Mr. Landau is a partner in Hausfeld LLP’s Philadelphia office. His practice focuses on representing plaintiffs in complex antitrust and consumer protection litigation. He has litigated claims of price-fixing and monopolization involving products and industries as varied as vitamins, microprocessors, transparent tape, medical devices, and stock car racing. In other cases, his clients have included consumers defrauded by manufacturers of “light” cigarettes and Indonesian villagers subjected to human rights abuses. The Legal 500 has recommended him as “very professional and personable.”  In March 2013, Law360 selected Mr. Landau as one of their "Rising Stars Under 40" placing him among only five of the "up and coming competition attorneys" recognized in the Competition/Antitrust category.

Mr. Landau graduated from the State University of New York at Binghamton, where he received a B.A. in History and Philosophy (summa cum laude, 1998) and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He obtained his law degree from Harvard Law School (cum laude, 2001), where he was co-chairperson of the Tenant Advocacy Project and a supervising editor of the Harvard Journal on Legislation.

After law school, Mr. Landau served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Bruce W. Kauffman, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. He then worked for six years at Cohen, Milstein, Hausfeld & Toll, P.L.L.C. before joining Hausfeld LLP.

Mr. Landau has been invited to speak on panels regarding the antitrust laws and other topics and is the author of several published articles. He is a member of the editorial board of The Antitrust Practitioner, an editor of Antitrust Law Developments, and a mediator in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Landlord-Tenant Appellate Mediation Program.
