Max Kaplan

Cozen O'Connor PC

With a diverse background aiding clients across industries and countries, Max Kaplan focuses on complex commercial cases that require more than a cookie-cutter approach to litigation. Max partners with clients to understand the client’s business and strategic goals so that success in litigation takes into account both the client’s bottom line and future growth.

Experienced in all stages of litigation, Max is well equipped to guide clients from pre-litigation strategy through post-trial and appellate practice, always working to place the client in the best possible position. In doing so, Max helps clients simplify their complex facts so that the court, jury, or arbitrator can see that their position is just, fair, and right.

Prior to joining Cozen O’Connor, Max was an associate with a global law firm in New York. There, he gained thorough experience working in state and federal court, as well as before arbitrators and mediators. Max also has worked extensively with international clients, helping them navigate the intricacy of the U.S. judicial system.

Active in pro bono work, Max has successfully litigated claims against the Department of Justice and City of New York for violations of prisoners’ civil rights and has aided a number of inmates seeking clemency for crimes for which they are serving disproportionate sentences. Max has also provided pro bono services to clients seeking relief in immigration and family court.

Max earned his J.D. from the New York University School of Law where he served as an executive articles editor for the Annual Survey of American Law. He earned his B.A. in philosophy magna cum laude from Columbia University.
