Global law firm Proskauer has further expanded its Private Equity and Mergers & Acquisitions groups with the addition of David K. Cohen as Senior Counsel in the firm’s Los Angeles office. Mr. Cohen joins the firm from Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP.

Proskauer Partner Michael Woronoff, co-head of the firm’s Private Equity and Mergers & Acquisitions groups and head of its Los Angeles office, said Mr. Cohen’s experience leading various types of private equity and mergers and acquisitions deals strongly complements and further enhances Proskauer’s transactional capabilities both in Los Angeles and nationally.

“David’s extensive experience adds to our critical mass as we respond to increased market demand for our services,” said Mr. Woronoff. “He’s a great addition to our growing corporate team in Los Angeles.”

Mr. Cohen represents financial sponsors, portfolio companies and publicly traded corporations in complex change-of-control transactions, leveraged acquisitions, securities and asset sales, and associated equity and debt financings. He has significant experience with portfolio company acquisition and exit transactions, strategic mergers and acquisitions, proxy contests and tender offers, joint ventures and strategic alliances.

Mr. Cohen’s addition continues the build-out of the firm’s Los Angeles transactional capabilities. In October 2012, the office added Senior Counsel Rajani K. Gupta as a finance lawyer.
