Kevin Cooman Honored as "Leader in Law"
Nov 25, 2013
McConville Considine partner, Kevin Cooman, was recently recognized during The Daily Record’s 2013 Attorneys of the Year celebration at the Hyatt Regency Rochester. Leaders in Law Awards honor members of the legal community who have shown tremendous dedication to the legal profession and selfless tireless commitment to the community.
For over 30 years Kevin has engaged in a broad-based civil litigation practice, handling cases from intake through full appellate practice before the highest courts in New York State and the federal court system. These cases have included major and precedent-setting litigation in the fields of: general contract and commercial claims, health care, trademark, civil rights, Freedom of Information entitlements, personal injury, employment discrimination, securities and consumer fraud, tax, banking, education and construction.
In 2012, Kevin and the litigation team successfully completed the long-running Beechwood v Leeds litigation in federal court, obtaining a $25 million settlement from the State of New York, after five current and former members of the New York State Department of Health were found liable by the jury for unconstitutional retaliation against a skilled nursing facility and its owners. This is believed to be among the largest civil case settlements ever obtained against the State.
