We provide legal strategies and solutions to businesses that accelerate health & healing
The Michael H Cohen Law Group was founded in 1999 to represent health and wellness products and technologies, practices, and ventures, that fuel the ability of healthcare technology to accelerate health and healing.
The firm’s mission statement reflected the firm’s focus on health and healing as its commitment “to the alleviation of suffering, to the regeneration of spirit, and to the endless unfolding of the human heart.” We have always understood “medicine,” in the “broadest sense, to encompass all global healing traditions – whether ancient or modern, tribal or technological, herbal or pharmaceutical; whether based on the biochemistry of the body of the anatomy of the spirit.” See our publications and resources.
After founding the firm, Michael H. Cohen, Founder & President, spent five years on faculty at Harvard Medical School, as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, and then as Adjunct Professor at the Harvard School of Public Health, as Director of Legal Programs for the Harvard Medical School Osher Institute. In this unusual position, Michael developed policies and procedures governing integrative medicine across all 14 Harvard-affiliated hospitals, laying the groundwork for subsequent client representation across healthcare technologies and platforms.
In 2005, Michael teamed up with Alan Dumoff, an attorney and social worker widely known for his pioneering work in representing multidisciplinary clinical care facilities and entities. Together, they grew a practice spanning numerous and complex new approaches to the improvement of human health. Recently, the firm added Randy Berholtz, who started his career at the Cravath firm and has been General Counsel to numerous healthcare ventures, including pharmaceutical companies. Meet our Team.

Our attorneys and affiliates represent clients from Sydney to London to Dubai to New York; from acupuncture clinics to cord blood cell banks, addiction treatment facilities, sleep centers, medical spas, telemedicine start-ups, mobile medical app developers, and manufacturers and distributors of dietary supplements, cosmetics, and medical devices.
