Staff & Paralegals

Culture

Cooley offers an environment of collaboration, challenge and reward. We are committed to building a community of professionals who share our vision and embrace our values. We are all dedicated to maintaining a diverse workplace that values and celebrates differences, from the way we relate to and support each other to the way we work together to meet the needs of our clients.

Our cooperative spirit is the trademark of the Cooley Culture and every person is instrumental to the success of the firm.

Development

We are committed to developing our people and ensuring they are at the top of their game. All non-attorneys have access to Skillsoft, an on-demand tool that offers a digital library of content. Topics range from business acumen to interpersonal skills.

The desktop training courses, e-books and videos are available at any time and are meant to supplement CooleyU, the firm’s technical training program.

Paralegals

Paralegals at Cooley are part of a collaborative team that values your knowledge and skills. We empower you in a variety of ways to attain long-term professional and personal growth by entrusting you with document management responsibilities, extensive client interaction and the opportunity to be a major contributor on client-based teams.

We continually seek qualified and experienced candidates in all our offices.

Be Well @ Cooley

Our team’s health, both physical and mental, is incredibly important to us. We offer a wide range of programs and services, ranging from biometric screenings and health/wellness coaching to fitness and nutrition programs.

We also offer a reimbursement on health club dues, yoga classes, tennis lessons, and other fitness activities.

Thanks

Our profession is characterized by demanding work and high stress over sustained periods. Success demands encouragement and there’s no encouragement like a meaningful thank you. 

Every year, we celebrate staff appreciation week and paralegal appreciation day. The tradition is punctuated by catered breakfasts and lunches typically served to the team by the partners, fun gifts and personal notes from the firm’s leadership. It's just one of the ways we show our appreciation.
