Hausfeld LLP Launches London Office

Washington, DC (February 17, 2009) – Hausfeld LLP, a global claimants’ law firm dedicated to handling large and complex litigation matters for individuals, officially launches in London today with the announcement that former Cohen Milstein Hausfeld & Toll (CMHT) partners Vincent Smith and Anthony Maton will join the Hausfeld firm in London. Ingrid Gubbay and Scott Campbell, both formerly of CMHT, will also join them. The firm will be called Hausfeld & Co LLP in London.
