Cooley + San Diego

25 Years of Success

Cooley was the first Silicon Valley law firm to open in San Diego. We launched in 1992, right after we helped take Qualcomm public. Today the office has 200+ lawyers and staff, including leading practitioners in tech, life sciences, M&A, IP, privacy & data protection, real estate and complex, high-stakes litigation.

Founded in San Francisco in 1920, Cooley has evolved into one of the largest and most successful law firms in the world, with a dominant global brand built around full-service excellence in tech and life sciences. The firm now has 900+ lawyers and a 2000+ workforce across 12 offices on three continents. San Diego has been key to this exponential growth.

We thank you for your support and look forward to further growth and achievements together. Here is a taste of who we are and what we do in this great city.
