San Francisco – November 9, 2015 – Law360 named Michael Rhodes, litigation partner and chair of Cooley's privacy & data protection group, a "Privacy MVP" for the fifth year in a row. Rhodes is one of only three lawyers in the United States to be honored with five-time "MVP" status.
This year alone, Cooley's privacy group has secured significant wins for some of the world's leading tech companies, including eBay, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and Sony, among others. Cooley has also been honored with Law360's "Privacy Group of the Year" award three times in the past four years.
Rhodes is renowned for guiding innovative companies to victory as the fundamental definitions of privacy are explored and challenged in an age of social media and global interconnectivity.
"Big ticket litigation is a team sport," Rhodes said. "I'm proud of the fact that the bedrock of Cooley is a culture of shared excellence. As such, I share this honor with the firm's entire privacy team – each person plays an integral role in our continued momentum and success, as we guide our pioneering clients at the intersection of law and innovation."
