Dechert Announces $15,000 Raises for First-Year Associate Attorneys

During his time with the U.S. Attorney office, there has been plenty of controversy over the prosecution of many black politicians. Members of the black community in D.C. have complained that the office targeted black politicians during the investigations that led to the convictions of three council members and the chief of staff. Cohen countered their complaints with this statement, “We prosecute conduct. We don’t prosecute color.”



Dechert Hires James Leary, Former Executive Director of Akin Gump, as COO

When controversy over the investigation into former D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray grew, Cohen left the office. Soon after, his successor announced that the investigation into Gray was done. The office had believed that Gray had knowledge of a crooked campaign fund, and the investigation may have impacted Gray’s loss to current Mayor Muriel Bowser.
