ATLANTA – Oct. 16, 2020 – Lori G. Cohen, vice chair of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP and chair of the Trial Practice Group, was recognized among Benchmark Litigation's 2021 “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” in America. This is the fourth consecutive year Cohen has achieved this recognition.
Benchmark Litigation is the definitive guide to the world’s leading litigation firms and lawyers. According to the publication’s website, attorneys are listed among the Top 100 based on a peer-and-client review-driven study and supported by representative work to exemplify this status. The guide provides law firm and lawyer rankings based on extensive interviews with litigators, dispute resolution specialists and their clients as well as analysis of the market’s most important cases and firm developments.
Cohen, who is no stranger to Benchmark Litigation honors, was also named a 2021 “Litigation Star” by the publication in the following market and practice areas: Georgia, US National: Product Liability, Commercial, and Healthcare. She has also been selected by the publication as follows: “Top 10 Women in Litigation,” 2020; “National Practice Area Star (General Commercial, Health Care, Product Liability),” 2020; “Local Litigation Star,” 2020; "Top 100 Trial Lawyers," 2018-2020; "Product Liability Attorney of the Year," 2019; "National Litigation Star," 2019; "Top 10 Women Litigators," 2018-2019; and "Top 250 Women in Litigation," 2015-2019.
Nationally recognized for her extraordinary trial record of 57 defense verdicts, Cohen leads a global practice that focuses on complex litigation of all types, including products liability and pharmaceutical, medical device, and health care litigation. Cohen has served as national, regional, and trial counsel for numerous medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers, handling all types of litigation, including class actions, multidistrict litigation, and trials nationally. Cohen and her team routinely take complex cases to trial and win, including some of the most complex mass torts in history. Well known for her record of winning high-stakes trials, Cohen is often called upon to "parachute in" at the last minute before trial, especially in challenging cases in dangerous jurisdictions.
In an industry where two-thirds of all attorneys in civil cases are men and only a quarter of women serve as lead or trial counsel, Cohen stands out as a female leader and a champion of developing the next generation of attorneys. Cohen is also the chair of GT’s Pharmaceutical, Medical Device & Health Care Litigation Group and co-chair of the firm’s Global Litigation Practice.
