Nancy Sher Cohen is a partner and a leader of the Insurance Recovery & Counseling Group. Lathrop GPM 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. She helped build the Los Angeles office from two lawyers to over 10 and catapulted the firm’s policyholder capabilities and profile to one of the largest practice groups in the US. 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. Cohen has held lead positions at several top-tier national law firms and has served as lead counsel in the prosecution of many insurance coverage lawsuits resulting in recoveries over $1.5 billion.
