Biography:

Who's Who Legal Product Liability Defence

Heidi Levine co-leads Sidley’s product liability and mass torts practice. She defends clients in mass tort, multidistrict federal and coordinated state court litigation, as well as related litigation outside the US involving pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, toxic torts and other products. Heidi is also a strategic key adviser on litigation risk management, including full product life-cycle risk assessments, from early stage to post-approval. She also has significant experience in alternative dispute resolution, and has designed innovative resolution programmes for companies faced with complex litigation.

In its 2019 ranking of Heidi’s practice, Chambers USA notes that she "takes complex things and makes them understandable," and describes her as "incredibly focused on client relations." Heidi is passionate about inclusion and the promotion and advancement of women in law. She serves as New York chair of Sidley’s committee on retention and promotion of women; was co-founder and co-chair of her prior firm’s global women’s initiative from 2006–2016; and serves on the board of Girls on the Run International, a non-profit organisation dedicated to inspiring girls using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. She taught a one-week course on legal writing at the University of Zambia School of Law to help better prepare students for written school exams. From 2012 to 2015, she oversaw free legal clinics for first responders seeking coverage for injuries and illnesses caused by the hazards of working at the World Trade Center on September 11.

WWL says: Heidi Levine is a dedicated product liability defence lawyer who focuses her "fantastic" practice on expertly representing clients in drug and medical device litigation.
