Jonathan CohnJonathan Cohn, who recently stepped down as one the Justice Department’s top civil lawyers, is returning to Sidley Austin as a partner in the firm’s appellate practice.

Cohn handled several high-profile assignments at Justice, including Arar v. Ashcroft, in which a Canadian citizen alleged that American authorities spirited him away to Syria, where he spent a year in confinement and was tortured. A decision is pending in the US Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit.

In 2007, Cohn argued the government’s case in Abigail Alliance v. Eschenbach in the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, successfully defending the Food and Drug Administration’s position that terminally ill patients have no constitutional right to unapproved drugs.


Sidley Austin LLP , formerly known as Sidley Austin Brown & Wood LLP, is one of the oldest law firms in the world. It is the sixth-largest US-based corporate law firm with over 1,800 lawyers, annual revenues of more than one billion dollars, and offices in 16 cities worldwide.
