Recognized for her extraordinary trial record of 57 defense verdicts, Lori G. Cohen is co-chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Global Litigation Practice, leading a group of over 600 attorneys nationally and internationally. Lori is chair of the Trial Practice Group, her “brain child,” which she created at GT. Lori is also chair of the Pharmaceutical, Medical Device & Health Care Litigation Group, a nationally renowned practice that she built upon joining GT. Under Lori’s leadership, this group has risen through the ranks and has grown to include 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. Lori 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. Lori and her team routinely take complex cases to trial and win, including some of the most complex mass torts in history.

Lori’s creativity and work ethic resonate with clients:

  • “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 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.”
