Latham & Watkins LLP has hired Rachel Weiner Cohen as counsel in its litigation and trial department.
Cohen joins Latham and Watkins from WilmerHale where she was counsel. She has extensive experience in both US and international intellectual property disputes.
Her practice ranges from international arbitrations and civil investigations to general commercial litigation.
Commenting on the move, global co-chair of the intellectual property practice David Callahan said: “We are excited to welcome Rachel Weiner Cohen to Latham’s powerhouse IP team.”
“Her experience complements Latham’s formidable courtroom reputation and ability to navigate clients’ highest-profile patent disputes.”
Office managing partner for Latham and Watkins in Washington DC, Michael Egge, added: “Cohen is well-positioned to help us build on our recent string of major appellate victories.”
“Clients will also benefit from her insight into many of the disruptive technologies at the heart of IP disputes.”
Cohen’s addition to Latham & Watkins LLP follows the recent appointment of senior trial lawyers Tara Elliott, Jamie Underwood and Kevin Wheeler.
