DLA Piper builds West Coast litigation with hire from Barnes
DLA Piper has hired litigator Levi Heath from Barnes & Thornburg in Los Angeles.
Heath joined Barnes as a partner in 2011. Prior to that he held positions at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld and Pfeiffer Thigpen FitzGibbon & Ziontz. The litigator focuses on civil and commercial litigation, toxic tort, and product liability defense.
His hire bolsters the firm’s West Coast litigation practice after last year’s merger with Los Angeles boutique Liner.
