Hausfeld is a global law firm operating through three separately constituted and regulated legal entities that provide legal and other client services in accordance with the relevant laws of the jurisdictions in which they respectively operate. Hausfeld LLP, a District of Columbia limited liability partnership, practices law in various jurisdictions in the United States of America. Hausfeld & Co. LLP, a New York limited liability partnership authorized and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority in its practice as solicitor in England & Wales under number 513826, provides services from offices in London and Brussels. Hausfeld Rechtsanwälte LLP, a New York limited liability partnership, provides services from offices in Berlin.
The use of the name “Hausfeld” and words or phrases such as “firm,” “law firm,” or “international legal practice” is for convenience only and does not imply that either or both entities are in partnership together or accept responsibility for the acts or omissions of each other. Legal responsibility for the provision of services to clients is defined in engagement terms entered into between clients and the relevant Hausfeld entity and these should be relied upon in determining liability for the services provided. Absent the specific agreement and consent of both entities involved, no Hausfeld entity is responsible for the acts or omissions of, nor has any authority to obligate or otherwise bind, any other Hausfeld entity.
In countries where Hausfeld does not have its own presence, legal services are provided through associations with leading local law firms.
Hausfeld LLP’s attorneys practice in federal district courts throughout the United States. Our attorneys also litigate in state courts where they are allowed to practice as enumerated on their individual attorney profiles. We have attorneys or associate with attorneys licensed to practice in almost every state court in the United States.
