She will help clients keep pace with the ever-evolving and increasing regulation of technology, and together we will continue to help clients navigate complex IP and technology issues.”

Cohen’s extensive experience spans multiple industries, including financial services, consumer products, industrials and manufacturing, and media and entertainment.

“Latham is a powerhouse in the technology sector with an unmatched global platform, and I am thrilled to join the firm,” Cohen said. “I was drawn to the firm’s collaborative and collegial culture, and I look forward to working with my new colleagues to solve clients’ most significant legal and commercial challenges.”

Cohen joins Latham from Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP where she served as a partner for over a year. She has also held positions at Skadden Arps, and Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP.
