Mr. Cohen is a partner in the Firm’s Commerical Litigation Department. He represents businesses of all sizes in a full range of civil and commercial litigation, including breach of contract, insurance coverage, product liability, construction, fraud, securities and commodities, professional liability, personal injury, premises liability, and defamation.

A skilled, efficient litigator, Mr. Cohen breaks down the issues and devises a precise path toward an optimal resolution. He gives clients his undivided attention and understands their predicaments, then solves them.

He has led critical depositions, hearings, conferences, and trials in such high-stakes, high-profile cases as September 11-related litigations, defense of asbestos actions, and residential mortgage-backed securities litigation arising from the 2007 financial crisis.
