POGUST GOODHEAD ANNOUNCES HIRING OF JEFFREY GITTLEMAN TO LEAD THE FIRM’S INTERNATIONAL ANTITRUST/COMPETITION PRACTICE

Global law firm Pogust Goodhead has announced the hiring of Jeffrey Gittleman to lead the firm’s growing international antitrust/competition practice.  Mr. Gittleman has joined the firm as a partner in Pogust Goodhead’s Philadelphia, Pennsylvania office.

Jeffrey Gittleman is a seasoned litigator with extensive experience representing plaintiffs in antitrust, securities and other class actions.  For over 20 years, Mr. Gittleman has played a leading role in prosecuting antitrust class actions against global price-fixing cartels.  Representing businesses, individuals, pension funds, and health and welfare funds, he has recovered billions of dollars for those who have been injured by powerful corporations.

Mr Gittleman said:

“I am excited to join the incredible team that Harris and Tom have assembled at Pogust Goodhead.  I look forward to helping the firm grow its international antitrust/competition practice, and being part of a cutting edge global law firm that is passionate about providing justice to those harmed by corporate misconduct.”

Chairman and Founding Partner, Harris Pogust said:

“I am delighted to welcome Jeff to Pogust Goodhead. Our goal is to defend the rights of those who have been wronged by some of the world’s largest companies and Jeff will undoubtedly help us achieve this goal. For more than 20 years, he has been at the top of his game and the antitrust/competition bar litigating complex class actions and recovering billions of dollars for investors, businesses and individuals injured by violations of securities, antitrust and consumer protection laws. There is no better person to lead our antitrust/ competition practice. I have known Jeff for over 20 years and there is nobody I would rather have lead this fight than Jeff Gittleman.”

The new hire will be based out of Pogust Goodhead’s Philadelphia office working alongside James Barry who has also recently joined the US team after spending the past years at the Locks Law Firm.  Jeff will also lend support to the firm’s burgeoning securities practice lead by Noah Wortman and Ian Berg.

The firm has been under recent expansion and now has U.S. offices in Miami, Philadelphia, San Diego and Moorestown, New Jersey serving victims of corporate wrongdoing in class actions and mass actions all over the world.

Pogust Goodhead is a partnership between British, American, Brazilian, and Dutch lawyers passionate about championing justice for the victims of wrongdoing by large corporations.

The firm is at the cutting edge of international consumer claims, including historic settlements on behalf of claimants in the Volkswagen NOx Emissions Group Litigation in May 2022 and victims of the British Airways Data Breach in 2021.

The law firm is also a leader in environmental litigation. Earlier this year the firm secured a landmark, unanimous judgment from the Court of Appeal that allows over 200,000 victims of the Mariana Dam disaster, Brazil’s worst ever environmental disaster, to seek redress against the world’s largest mining company, BHP, in the Courts of England and Wales.

A partnership and £100m funding deal with North Wall Capital was also recently announced as the largest investment in a UK claimant law firm to date.

Pogust Goodhead has recently seen the recruitment of C-Suite leaders Chief Operating Officer Alicia Alinia and Chief Financial Officer Jash Radia, bringing decades of experience in strategic leadership across the business.
