Arthur E. Coia is Of Counsel at Cohen Milstein and is a member of the Securities Fraud/Investor Protection Practice Group. In that role, Mr. Coia works to keep clients, many of which are Taft-Hartley pension plans, informed of potential fraud and corporate governance issues within their investments so they are able to consider appropriate action in a timely manner.
Prior to joining the Firm in 2013, Mr. Coia spent more than 20 years experience in the investment advisory business. He was President of an asset management company for 10 years, where he oversaw the management of more than $4 billion in assets. Earlier in his career, Mr. Coia worked as a Portfolio Manager and Securities Analyst for a well-respected trust company and other independent “buy side" advisors. Because of his prior role as a fiduciary in managing benefit fund assets, Mr. Coia understands how important it is for such funds to recover all assets to which they are legally entitled, and to take timely corporate governance actions where appropriate. Mr. Coia uses his unique combination of investment experience and legal knowledge to raise client awareness of instances where they have been defrauded of assets and helps them with the recovery process.
Mr. Coia earned a B.S. in Finance from Georgetown University McDonough School of Business, and received his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center.
