Goldberg Segalla LLP is pleased to announce Eric S. Cohen has joined the law firm as a special counsel in its New York office. He is a member of the firm’s Professional Liability and Business and Commercial Practice Groups.

Eric counsels clients in a broad spectrum of professional liability and business and commercial lawsuits, including negligence and breach of duty causes of action. He frequently represents design professionals and others in the construction field, as well as corporate directors and officers.

In the area of directors and officers liability coverage, highlights of Eric's professional experience include successfully moving to have misrepresentation claims dismissed against the CEO of a national company seeking in excess of $70 million. The plaintiff, an international bank, could not appeal the trial court’s decision.
