Matthew S. Axelrod is joining Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll in Washington, D.C.
Axelrod worked at Department of Justice for more than decade.
Most recently, Axelrod served as Associate Deputy Attorney General, where he worked on some of the most significant white collar criminal matters and False Claims Act investigations.
“We are very pleased that Matt is joining the firm,” said Cohen Milstein partner Joseph Sellers. “He brings a broad portfolio of strengths, including significant trial experience as a federal prosecutor and deep expertise in the health care fraud, financial malfeasance and False Claims Act areas. We applaud his years of service to the Attorney General and look forward to his new work as a private attorney general.”
Axelrod said he was thrilled to be joining Cohen Milstein “where I will be able to continue my work of holding corporate wrongdoers accountable.”
“I look forward to working in partnership with the outstanding lawyers at Cohen Milstein, and with federal and state enforcement officials, to bring to justice those who would defraud taxpayers and consumers,” Axelrod said.
Axelrod earned his J.D. from Yale Law School and his B.A. in English, cum laude, from Amherst College.
