Cohen Milstein’s New Head On Firm’s ‘Mission-Driven Culture’


January 9, 2024

Benjamin D. Brown is taking on his new role as managing partner of Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC with an eye toward maintaining a firm culture that enables lawyers to build the type of world they want for themselves and their families.

Brown said that Cohen Milstein — which touts its work as “uncommon advocacy for the common good” on its website — is successful in part because of the job satisfaction it offers, as well as its younger generation of lawyers who are hoping to have a successful career and also make a positive impact.

In his new role, Brown said he is tasked with further instilling in Cohen Millstein’s lawyers the mission of serving as “private attorneys general” to protect against corporate overreach. That’s especially challenging when there’s now a lack of gatherings around the water cooler, opportunities which often led the plaintiff-side attorneys to feel more “energized” by each other’s work.
