Super Lawyer Stephen Kohn



Stephen Kohn is one of the nation’s foremost experts in whistleblower protection law and the author of the first legal treatise on whistleblowing. I had the pleasure to meet him while taking his photo for Super Lawyers Magazine.

Many of his court victories have become landmark precedents in modern workplace law, establishing the employee’s right to free speech under the First Amendment. A respected scholar as well as a litigator, he has testified in Congress on behalf of whistleblowers and worked with the Senate Judiciary staff to draft corporate whistleblower protections under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

Perhaps his most famous client was Linda Tripp, who he represented in her successful lawsuit against the federal government for illegally releasing her work record.
