Shlomo ben Yitzchak HaLevi (1532–1600) was a prominent rabbinic scholar in Thessaloniki, Greece, during the Jewish community's "Golden Age." Among his other duties, he served the exiled Jews from Évora, Portugal [1]. He is most well known for his responsa Maharash Levi (or Maharash L'veit HaLevi), published in Thessaloniki in 1652 [2]. These respona are arranged according to the four volume structural model of the Arba'ah Turim, and have been cited by such later rabbinic authorities as Rabbi Avraham Gombiner in his Magen Avraham.
