Law360 Names Cooley Practice Group of the Year for Tech

Palo Alto – January 14, 2020 – Law360 has recognized Cooley’s technology practice as one of its Practice Groups of the Year. In another robust year for the firm, Cooley advised clients on some of the highest-profile corporate transactions and complex litigation matters in 2019. 

Law360’s Practice Group of the Year awards honor the law firms behind major deals and litigation wins that resonated throughout the legal industry in the past year. This year’s winning practice groups rose to the top of more than 700 submissions. 

“Partnering with our cutting-edge technology clients, from industry disrupters to established powerhouses, allows us to empower and defend innovation that helps drive the economy and contribute to job creation,” said Mike Lincoln, chair of Cooley’s global business department. “It is extremely gratifying to be recognized for our cross-department capabilities advising the best of the best in tech.”

“This achievement is a testament to how focused Cooley is on delivering exceptional advocacy across practice groups,” added Mike Attanasio, chair of Cooley’s global litigation department. “Our incredibly talented lawyers, together with our unmatched collaborative culture, keep us well-positioned to partner with our global clients as we help drive and protect their innovation and success.”

Last year, The Recorder distinguished Cooley as Tech Deal Department of the Year for the firm’s work on several blockbuster deals, including Tableau’s $15.7 billion sale to Salesforce and Uber’s landmark $8.1 billion IPO. Cooley’s global commercial litigation practice – with its unprecedented experience representing clients in the tech and life sciences matters, including a long history of winning bet-the-company drug ownership and licensing dispute – is similarly lauded and recently earned Transatlantic Litigation Team of the Year at the Transatlantic Legal Awards.
