- Momentum since January 2015 UK launch rewarded with top recognition
London – November 26, 2015 – Cooley was named London Office of the Year at the British Legal Awards 2015. UK publication Legal Week, which organizes the awards, commented: "The US firm only opened in the capital in January this year - but it has certainly made a splash. Not content with its initial launch with 20 partners, it went on to make a series of hires from rivals to continue on its growth path."
"It has been a very exciting year for us and we are thrilled to have received this recognition so soon after our arrival in London," said Justin Stock, Cooley's UK managing partner. "Since launch, our ambition has been to build around, and add to, the great team of people we have in our office with a view to bringing something new and different to the UK market. We have just begun."
Cooley opened its London office in January 2015, with 20 partners and more than 55 lawyers and other professionals. From the outset, the office has offered depth across key areas, including corporate/M&A, complex litigation, venture capital, technology transactions, IP, tax, competition and privacy.
