The Biden administration on Tuesday announced it will nominate Coffey – a onetime federal prosecutor, class action plaintiffs lawyer, political candidate, litigation funding pioneer and corporate law firm partner – to serve as the U.S. Department of the Navy’s general counsel.
Coffey retired from the Navy with the rank of captain in 2004, after 30 years of uniformed service, both in active duty and in the U.S. Naval Reserve, according to the White House.
He now chairs the complex litigation group at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel, where he’s been a partner since 2013.
