C&G Opens Washington DC Office
Cohen & Gresser is pleased to announce the opening of its fourth office in Washington, D.C. The Washington office will be led by partner Melissa H Maxman, and will handle a range of commercial litigation and regulatory enforcement matters, with a focus on U.S. antitrust issues, criminal and civil litigation, and compliance and regulatory disputes in the federal agencies.

Melissa has decades of litigation experience at both the trial and appellate levels, primarily in the areas of antitrust, RICO, environmental law, complex commercial disputes, and white collar defense. She has extensive experience advising domestic and foreign corporations on global antitrust issues, and has represented clients in complex civil and criminal matters before the Federal Trade Commission, the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice, and in private civil matters. Prior to joining Cohen & Gresser, Melissa was the Chair of the Antitrust and Trade Regulation practice group in the Washington, D.C. offices of two large national law firms. She is licensed to practice law in the District of Columbia, the State of Maryland, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

"I am proud to be opening the D.C. office of Cohen & Gresser.  The firm's international client base requires regulatory and antitrust expertise in the nation's capital, which our office will provide.  But it is the high quality of the attorneys, and the firm's commitment to providing excellent service to clients, that ultimately made C&G so attractive to my clients and me," said Maxman.
Lawrence T Gresser, managing partner of Cohen & Gresser, said: "We are very happy to be opening our fourth office, and even happier to be opening it with Melissa Maxman, one of the leading antitrust lawyers in the country. We have known and worked with Melissa for years, and we know that she shares our core values of excellence, integrity, and client service."
