Lifetime Achievement Award 2016: Rodgin Cohen

Lifetime Achievement Award 2016

We are pleased to present Rodgin Cohen with our 2016 lifetime achievement award. Based in New York, he is senior chairman of Sullivan & Cromwell and has decades of experience advising on major bank transactions and regulatory matters. 

An “influential figure” in the financial industry, Cohen has been at the vanguard of developments affecting Wall Street. From advising on consolidation in the 80s, to assisting foreign banks with the establishment of their offices in the US, to most recently advising on mandates at the heart of the economic crisis; Cohen has been a trailblazer throughout his career. Indeed, he is a four-time winner of our Banking Lawyer of the Year award, attesting to the high regard in which he is held by peers. 

We present this award tonight in recognition of his outstanding accomplishments to date and contribution to the legal sector.
