Hausfeld Appoints New Co-Chair Of US Antitrust Practice

 |  March 20, 2023

Hausfeld announced the appointment of Partner Megan Jones as Co-Chair of the firm’s US Antitrust practice group. Joining Partner Scott Martin in this role, Megan will be vital in determining the strategic direction of Hausfeld’s renowned antitrust practice and aiding in the growth and development of our clients.

“Megan is a true force of nature, whom I’ve had the pleasure to know, as many have, as a respected adversary for many years and later a trusted friend,” said Scott Martin, Co-Chair of the Antitrust practice group. “She has cleared away chaff in designing discovery plans that cut to case-critical documents and calmed many a nervous witness before testifying – and, importantly, works to impart those skills to our younger colleagues, both at Hausfeld and at firms with whom we work. And she brings real passion to her practice and representation of clients, which is evidenced by the fact that courts trust her again and again to lead substantial class cases. I know all of that same energy will follow her into her new role.”

An experienced and tenacious litigator with over 20 years of experience, Megan has litigated multiple antitrust class actions for millions of class members and has recovered billions of dollars for her clients. Megan was the day-to-day litigation captain for In re Blue Cross Blue Shield Antitrust Litigation case that garnered a $2.67 billion dollar settlement, and currently leads several antitrust class actions across the country. Megan was recently appointed to the Monitoring Committee for the Blue Cross case, alongside David Boies (Boies, Schiller & Flexner) and William Isaacson (Paul Weiss). As a founding partner of Hausfeld, Megan has helped steer the firm from its outset in 2008, and presently serves on the firm’s Management Committee. Megan brings that prior management experience to her new role as practice Co-Chair, including having been the firm’s first Chair of the New Case Committee.
