Paul Hanly

A litigator known for representing plaintiffs in class actions died Saturday, leaving behind one of the most complex federal cases in history.

Paul J. Hanly Jr., 70, was one of three members of the plaintiffs’ executive committee that oversaw the consolidated litigation in the northern Ohio district against multiple counties of opioid manufacturers and distributors. Simmons shareholder Hanly Conroy spent the second half of his 40-year legal career as a litigator-only attorney, recovering more than $ 1 billion in total in billing for clients.
