Jeremy Cohen, Marcus Mintz and Erik Weibust

Jeremy A. Cohen is a Partner in Commercial Litigation in the New York office of Seyfarth Shaw LLP. Jeremy provides his clients with real-world guidance and a focus on achievable business results, consistent with corporate needs rather than just litigation wins and losses. In doing so, he helps clients navigate litigation-avoidance strategies where necessary, while preparing to wield all of the tools of offensive or defensive litigation, as circumstances require.

Jeremy draws on the firm’s cross-discipline, cross-border capabilities to deliver excellent results for clients. Whether it’s teaming up with colleagues in Boston to pitch trade secrets work in New England, coordinating with the Los Angeles team to represent a witness in a California proceeding, acting as local counsel for firm clients in the Tri-State area, or even reaching across the Pacific to work with the Asia-Pacific offices to facilitate a Chinese real estate sale, Jeremy takes full advantage of Seyfarth’s subject matter depth and geographic breadth to get the job done.

He has represented and counseled clients through all phases and forms of litigation, including pre-litigation resolution, alternative dispute resolution, administrative law proceedings, emergency injunctions, jury trials and appeals.
