Going in-house wasn’t always Elizabeth Levy’s plan. The Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics lawyer actually started out as a mechanical engineer who hopped from a specialty chemicals company to a firm that made semiconductor manufacturing equipment to one that made incandescent lamps, before deciding to go to law school at night in her late twenties. She graduated with a J.D. with honors in 1993, and made partner at Lappin & Kusmer, a boutique IP firm in Boston, in 1998. Then she moved over to McDermott Will & Emery, where she met her husband-to-be—a fellow McDermott partner, who had a young son.
