Adam Levin is head of the Americas Litigation practice at Hogan Lovells and represents some of the country's most well-known companies in complex matters, ranging from multibillion-dollar lawsuits to high-stakes investigations. With a focus on life sciences, pharmaceutical, and consumer disputes, Adam applies experience, practical solutions, and a team-oriented approach to our clients' most challenging issues.

During a career spanning more than 25 years, Adam has defended cases collectively alleging more than $15 billion in damages, served as lead counsel in multiple nationwide multidistrict litigation (MDL) matters, and handled more than fifty class actions, including pharmaceutical and product cases and matters brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). He was trial counsel and obtained a unanimous victory from the Connecticut Supreme Court to defeat a nationwide class action alleging nearly US$100 million in damages. He has argued multiple motions for class certication under antitrust, RICO, and consumer protection theories. And he has experience handling all aspects of class action and other discovery, trial, and appellate proceedings.

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 a generation: the landmark Tulia, Texas case that led to the release of 12 persons from jail, pardons for 35 persons, and a civil settlement.

Adam also serves on the Global Leadership Team of the firm’s Disputes practice and previously was General Manager of Litigation for the firm’s Washington office. Before joining Hogan Lovells, he 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.
