Palo Alto, Calif. – January 15, 2014 – Cooley LLP announced today that, for the second time in three years, its privacy practice group has been named a "Privacy Practice Group of the Year" by Law360. The annual list recognizes elite practice groups based on the size, complexity and consequence of matters handled.
In selecting Cooley, Law360 highlights the firm's work on behalf of Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, eBay and Sony, noting that the group "has ingenuity to spare and [doesn't] hesitate to show it off with its industry-changing results."
"The privacy group has been so successful over the years by innovating along with our clients," said Michael Rhodes, chair of the privacy practice, and a three-time recipient of the publication's "MVP" award for pre-eminence in privacy work. "We work to come up with creative solutions to novel legal issues, often which have not yet been tackled in a court of law. It is this ingenuity that has allowed us to stay on the forefront of counseling and litigating many ground-breaking matters and cases that have significantly shaped the legal landscape for modern commerce."
