Email: lskruzmane@strangeandbutler.com

Lauma Skruzmane will be a Partner of our practice in London which we expect to launch in September 2018. Prior to joining Strange & Butler, she worked in antitrust litigation specialist teams at the London offices of international law firms Boies Schiller Flexner and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.

Lauma’s practice focuses on international disputes with a special expertise in antitrust related matters. Lauma has acted for a wide range of clients in general commercial and antitrust litigation matters before the High Court, Court of Appeal and the Competition Appeal Tribunal in the UK and has been involved in developing and co-ordinating antitrust litigation strategies across Europe. Clients value her desire to understand why and how resolution of any actual or potential litigation fits within the overall commercial strategy.

Notable representative matters include:

  • acting for MasterCard in its defence of the proposed £14bn opt-out collective action by consumers, among the largest claims brought in English legal history and one of the first collective actions under the UK's new collective action regime;
  • acting for ABB in co-ordinating its defence of claims in the UK and other jurisdictions arising from the gas insulated switchgear and cables cartels;
  • acting for parties in follow-on litigation including arising from the synthetic rubber and the air cargo cartels; and
  • acting for a multinational company in the pharma sector on an internal antitrust compliance investigation and potential related restructuring of internal price setting processes.

Lauma is fluent in Latvian and has a working level knowledge of French and Russian. On-going linguistics projects include improving Arabic, Japanese and German.

July 2018: Our London practice will be through a limited liability partnership, Strange & Butler UK LLP, registered in England & Wales, which is in the process of seeking authorisation from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (“SRA”) to operate as a solicitor’s firm - any developments will be posted on this site in due course. In the meantime, and for the avoidance of doubt, nothing appearing on this website shall be interpreted as stating or implying that either Strange & Butler LLP or Strange & Butler UK LLP are currently authorised by the SRA
