Safa Osmani advises her clients on the full spectrum of dispute resolution, including litigation and mediation, with a particular focus on product liability litigation.

She has defended pharmaceutical and medical device companies in individual and multidistrict litigation in federal and state courts, including hundreds of civil opioid lawsuits pending in the Northern District of Ohio and various state courts across the United States. Safa's passion for health science and medicine and her pragmatic style allow her to effectively defend against complex causation issues in a cost-effective and creative manner for her clients.

Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, Safa clerked for the Honorable Douglas P. Woodlock of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts and the Honorable Francis X. Flaherty of the Rhode Island Supreme Court. Safa graduated in the top one percent of her class from Suffolk University Law School, where she was senior managing editor of the Suffolk University Law Review, President and Vice President of the Muslim Law Students Association, and Secretary of the South Asian Law Students Association.

Safa received Suffolk Law School's Public Citizenship Award for her participation in the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project, teaching high school students constitutional law and oral advocacy skills. Demonstrating her continuing commitment to public service and pro bono work, Safa currently represents refugee and migrant children in immigration court and she captains the annual Fund Drive for Greater Boston Legal Services, which provides legal representation to poverty-stricken clients in the Boston area.
