London – June 28, 2018 – The Lawyer recognized Cooley as International Firm of the Year at its annual awards ceremony, which celebrates excellence across the legal industry.
“This prestigious award inspires us to continue to strive for excellence,” said Justin Stock, Cooley’s UK managing partner. “It speaks to our many hard-fought successes here and across the globe, along with the passion of our teams and, most importantly, our ambitious clients. It’s great to be recognized in this way.”
The Lawyer pointed to Cooley’s “impressive financial track record in the London market combined with a slew of high-value deals and interesting work in the technology and private equity spaces.”
This award follows closely on the heels of another UK-based accolade. Earlier this month, a judging panel at the Transatlantic Legal Awards named Cooley its Capital Markets Team of the Year. In addition, the judges at Legal Week magazine in December recognized Cooley as London Office of the Year at the British Legal Awards for the second time since the firm’s London launch.
Cooley’s London office has built out robust practices, including corporate/M&A, finance, venture capital & private equity, capital markets, technology transactions, insurance, litigation, IP, product compliance & liability, white collar crime, tax, employment, competition and privacy & data protection, among others. In less than three years, the UK office has grown by more than 50% in headcount.
