Practice groupLitigation, Arbitration, and Employment

Serving on the Global Leadership Team for our Litigation, Arbitration, and Employment practice, 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 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.

Adam's class action work is of particular note. He is currently lead counsel in two nationwide multidistrict litigation (MDL) matters and counsel of record in a third. He has handled more than two dozen class actions in the last few years alone, including product matters and cases 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 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 class action discovery, settlement, and other 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 recent years: the landmark Tulia, Texas case that led to the release of 12 persons from jail, pardons for 35 persons, and a US$6 million settlement. For these efforts and others, Adam and the firm have been honored by the NAACP LDF and the Washington Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights and 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.
