Sophie Cohen - Aintree Group Legal

Sophie Cohen

Sophie has over 25 years of experience as a lawyer, business advisor and leader, working for clients ranging from family businesses to household names. She looks after the ‘legal stuff’ so that clients are empowered to realise their dreams and goals, solve the problems that keep them awake at night, and bring them peace of mind.

Sophie has a heart-based approach to law, which is backed by multiple degrees and a truckload of experience. She brings authentic values-based leadership, a broad commercial perspective, and a healthy dose of creative flair to her work. She values open communication and building genuine relationships with clients, as well as their families and trusted advisors.

At home with her 4 teenage children or partner Dean and his family, you might find Sophie busting out some disco diva moves (much to her kids’ embarrassment), watching movies, or running, swimming and playing futsal to stay fit and active. The beach is Sophie’s happy place and she can always rely on the ocean to lift her spirits, free her mind and nurture her soul.

Sophie is also passionate about helping young people to realise their full potential and she does this through her work on the Board of Mindfull Aus Ltd and as an educator in the Juris Doctor program at RMIT University.
