Ralph Kohnen has accepted an invitation from the board of directors of the American Bar Foundation to become a Fellow of the Foundation. The Fellows comprise a global honorary society of attorneys, judges, law faculty, and legal scholars whose public and private careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the highest principles of the legal profession and to the welfare of their communities.
Membership in the Fellows is limited to one percent of lawyers licensed to practice in each jurisdiction. Fellows are recommended by their peers and elected by the board of the American Bar Foundation. Established in 1955, Fellows support the research of the American Bar Foundation through annual contributions and sponsor seminars and events of direct relevance to the legal profession.
Kohnen is chair of Taft’s Corporate Compliance & White Collar Criminal Defense practice. He has deep experience conducting internal investigations, defending a range of clients in sophisticated white collar litigation and regulatory proceedings, and counseling clients on compliance programs and issues.
