Nancy Sher Cohen
Partner in Charge
Lathrop GPM LLP
Nancy Sher Cohen is the partner in charge of the Lathrop GPM Los Angeles office, a firm Executive Committee member and an Insurance Recovery & Counseling Practice Group leader. Lathrop GPM (formerly Lathrop Gage) recruited Cohen in late 2017 seeking the right individual to rejuvenate and bring local visibility to its Los Angeles office and national visibility to its insurance recovery work. Cohen helped build the Los Angeles office from two lawyers to 15 and catapulted the firm’s policyholder capabilities and profile to a new level, now one of the largest practice groups in the United States representing policyholders.
A lawyer of 40-plus years, Cohen entered the legal world when the glass ceiling was still very much intact, especially in litigation departments. She often stood alone as a sole female on large teams, but that has never stopped her. She continues to litigate cases for significant companies on precedent-setting matters.
