Serving as the Litigation Practice Manager for our Washington office, Adam Levin handles civil litigation and government investigations across the United States.
Adam has represented some of the country’s most well-known companies in complex commercial matters ranging from billion dollar lawsuits to high-stakes investigations. With a particular focus on life sciences, pharmaceutical, and consumer-related disputes, Adam applies experience, practical solutions, and a team-oriented approach to our clients’ most challenging issues.
Adam’s class action experience is of particular note: he has handled nearly two dozen class actions in the last several years alone, including product matters and consumer class actions brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). He served as trial counsel and obtained a unanimous appellate victory from the Connecticut Supreme Court in the defense of a nationwide class action alleging nearly US$100 million in damages. He co-argued the response to a motion that led to denial of certification for a putative nationwide RICO class. And he has experience handling all aspects of discovery and settlement proceedings in major class actions.
Adam is also a trial lawyer with a commitment to public service. His trial victories include successfully defending and prosecuting a US$90 million dispute, and he served as trial counsel for one of the most high-profile civil rights matters in recent years: the landmark Tulia, Texas case, which resulted in the release of 12 persons from jail, full pardons for 35 persons, and a settlement of more than US$6 million in a civil case for which Adam had principal daily responsibility. For these efforts and others, Adam and the firm have been honored by the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund and the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights & Urban Affairs.
Before joining Hogan Lovells, Adam clerked for the Honorable Marjorie O. Rendell on both the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
The Litigation Law Practice:
Hailed by industry commentators as “the best of the best” — a “go to firm” with a “prestigious reputation”— Hogan Lovells combines deep industry knowledge with a real grasp of the judicial process.
Our litigation group will effectively guide you through courts, tribunals, and governmental bodies, across the globe. We maintain a regular presence in courts and tribunals, and we have an enviable track record of success at all levels of the judicial process — so much so that industry analyst BTI Consulting described us in 2015 as a “fearsome opponent.”
We want to win, but also know that it is often better to be out of court rather than in it. So we always think strategically about what is best for you. Says Chambers 2015 about us, “They always make you feel like you’re their most important client.”
Hogan Lovells has more than 2,500 lawyers in over 45 offices worldwide, yet we work as one seamless team, ensuring we serve your best interests across borders and forums. Of the top international corporations, we’ve advised 50 of the Fortune 100, 34 of the FTSE 100, and 17 of the DAX 30, often on high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation.
