Adam P. Cohen

Partner 212 335 2037

Adam represents and advises clients on matters including government and internal investigations, corporate disputes, compliance, and good government litigation. He works on matters for global corporations, private companies, religious and non-profit religious institutions, community groups, corporate executives, and other individuals.

Adam’s focus has been on white collar defense and investigations.  He has helped lead investigations large and small, including for some of the world’s largest health care, auto parts, reinsurance, banking, and technology companies.  In some matters, he was responsible for conducting simultaneous internal investigations in multiple countries, including in Germany, France, the U.K., Italy, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, and South Korea.  Thus, he has developed a deep experience in privacy laws in those jurisdictions and elsewhere.  Because Adam has also led investigations for closely-held firms and small businesses, he works effectively, including by using the latest technologies to reduce overall attorney-review time in large document cases.

Adam is also a tough litigator, obtaining successful outcomes—including favorable settlements—on both the plaintiff and defense side for clients in various types of disputes, including antitrust, trade secrets, the False Claims Act, procurement law, and labor litigation.  He has significant in-court experience, including first-chair experience in appellate courts.

Adam has also advised companies and organizations, including non-profits, on a host of compliance issues, including health care compliance, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the False Claims Act, and campaign finance laws.  He conducts top-to-bottom reviews of his clients’ compliance departments, provides recommendations, drafts policies and procedures and best practices, and counsels clients on compliance matters prior to transactions.

Before joining Walden Macht & Haran LLP, Adam practiced law for over seven years in the award-winning litigation department of a large global law firm.  He previously served as chief of staff for a member of Congress and as a senior member of a citywide mayoral campaign.

He earned his J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 2007.  He is a graduate of Yeshiva University, where he earned his B.A. in 2002 with a dual major in Psychology and Economics.
