Hayley Haldeman is a litigator practicing in complex commercial disputes and national mass tort litigation, with an emphasis on product liability. She represents companies in claims involving duty to warn, design defect, public nuisance, and market share and other collective liability theories.

Currently, Hayley is the lead associate defending The Sherwin-Williams Company in a public nuisance lawsuit brought by California cities and counties. In other litigation, she has drafted dispositive motions and appellate briefs, including before state supreme courts; taken and defended depositions of expert and fact witnesses; and assisted with national case management. She has worked with Rule 30(b)(6) witnesses, as well as experts in marketing, economics, chemistry, and history. Hayley also represents a national credit reporting bureau in Fair Credit Reporting Act cases brought by both putative classes and individual plaintiffs.

As part of her pro bono practice, Hayley served as lead counsel in a Third Circuit appeal, in which the government fully vacated a civil forfeiture that had been entered against her client. In addition, she counsels nonprofit organizations regarding tax-exempt status and corporate governance.

Hayley serves on the Board of Directors of the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania, the Mattress Factory (a contemporary art museum), and Radiant Hall (a community arts nonprofit) and is active in various other community initiatives and nonprofit organizations. She founded a regional program that promotes childhood interest in local history and, for the past four years, has mentored a middle school student.
