Alston & Bird has enhanced its environmental litigation capabilities with the addition of Jason Levin, who joins the firm’s Environment, Land Use & Natural Resources Group as a partner in the Los Angeles office.
“Jason brings seasoned perspective and a sterling reputation for helping clients defend complex products liability, toxic torts, and class action matters, including high-stakes disputes involving chemicals and the oil and gas industry,” said Greg A. Christianson, partner and co-chair of Alston & Bird’s Environment, Land Use & Natural Resources Group. “In addition, he shares our commitment to excellent service, intellectual rigor, and creative problem solving in a fast-paced and dynamic area of the law.”
Bolstered by nearly three decades of litigation experience, Jason’s practice also focuses on commercial litigation, California’s Unfair Competition Law and anti-SLAPP statutes, the Lanham Act and false advertising, and California consumer protection statutes.
“With his valuable insights into litigation and regulation in California, Jason is a fantastic complement to our deep bench of specialists across the country,” said Jeffrey A. Rosenfeld, partner in charge of Alston & Bird’s Los Angeles office. “His arrival better positions our team to help clients navigate their most challenging issues at the state, federal, and appellate levels.”
