Practice Areas

JIM COLE, was the former Deputy Attorney General of the United States. His practice includes the full range of federal enforcement and internal investigation matters, with a particular emphasis on cross-border and multijurisdictional matters. He has extensive experience overseeing sensitive and controversial matters, both within the government and while in private practice, including both testifying numerous times before congressional committees and representing individuals in congressional hearings.

Jim served as the Deputy Attorney General of the United States, the second highest official at the Department of Justice (DOJ), from January 2011 until January 2015. In that role, he was responsible for the day-to-day supervision and direction of all organizational units of the DOJ and worked closely with Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to formulate and implement key policies and programs for the Department. Jim was also one of the key representatives of the DOJ to the National Security Council. Among his key achievements, Jim enhanced coordination between the DOJ and financial regulatory agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and between DOJ and overseas law enforcement, regulatory and policy-making agencies in the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland and other countries. He also worked closely with the Attorney General to formulate high-profile initiatives, including the federal response to state decriminalization of marijuana and the “smart on crime” program to reduce the non-violent prison population and the large proportion of African Americans in federal prisons.
