Adam K. Levin

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 in the successful defense of a certified 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.
