Recognized for her extraordinary trial record of 58 defense verdicts, Lori G. Cohen is Vice Chair of Greenberg Traurig and Co-Chair of the firm’s Global Litigation Practice, leading a group of over 600 attorneys nationally and internationally. Lori is also Co-Chair of the Trial Practice Group, her “brain child,” which she created at GT. Upon joining GT, she built the Pharmaceutical, Medical Device & Health Care Litigation Group. Under Lori’s leadership, this group has risen through the ranks and has grown to over 100 attorneys in more than 30 offices in the U.S. and globally; in 2018, the group was named The American Lawyer’s “Product Liability Litigation Department of the Year.” Referred to as a “trial wizard,” Lori is often called upon to “parachute in” at the last minute before trial, especially in challenging cases and dangerous jurisdictions. She has served as national, regional, and trial counsel for numerous medical device and pharmaceutical manufac-turers, handling all types of litigation, including class actions, multidistrict litigation, and trials. Lori and her team routinely take complex cases to trial and win, including some of the most complex mass torts in history.

  • “Personally, working with her and having her on the team is a constant safeguard if I need to take a case to trial, and let the plaintiffs know there’s a threat of trial.”
  • “She’s a very talented trial lawyer with a tremendous presence. Basically, she’s fearless in a courtroom.”
  • “Lori Cohen is also a master at being highly relatable (and ultimately persuasive) to a wide variety of audiences from jurors to judges.”
  • “Lori brings a very unique style to the courtroom. She’s not reading a list of questions and stuck to that script. She is evolving with where the witness is taking her.”
  • “If I had a high-stakes product liability matter, there’s nobody I would rather try the case than her.”
  • “She is very strategic, I trust her judgment immensely.”
