Jeffrey Cohen will join Lowenstein Sandler as a partner in its bankruptcy practice, with a focus on troubled retailers and technology companies.

Cohen joins Lowenstein from Cooley, where he was a partner.

Kenneth A. Rosen, chair of Lowenstein’s Bankruptcy, Financial Reorganization & Creditors’ Rights Department, said, “Jeff brings an enormous amount of talent in retail bankruptcies, both on the creditor and debtor sides. I have known him for years, and have long admired his legal work. His impressive handling of substantial cases will greatly add to our depth of experience in retail and tech matters.”

Cohen has experience representing debtors and creditors’ committees in bankruptcy proceedings involving retailers such as Blockbuster Video, Golfsmith, Eastern Mountain Sports, Bob’s Stores, City Sports, Levitz Furniture, KB Toys, Filene’s Basement, Brookstone and Pizzeria Uno. In the tech sector, he served as debtor’s counsel to Quirky and Wink and as creditors’ committee counsel in Atari, Beyond Oblivion, Fuhu and Hipcricket, in their Chapter 11 proceedings. Cohen is also a certified bankruptcy mediator and approved fee examiner by the U.S. Trustee for Region 3.
