National Law Journal Names Cooley to 2015 "IP Hot List"

Palo Alto – June 3, 2015 – Cooley has been named to the National Law Journal's "IP Hot List," which is comprised of just 15 firms "that accomplish great things in the realm of intellectual property law."

In selecting Cooley, the NLJ highlighted its work on behalf of a "who's who of Silicon Valley companies." It also recognized the firm's 2014 victory in defending Gilead Sciences' rights to the hepatitis C drug Sovaldi, and the firm's representation of HTC and Motorola in a US ITC trial that led to a favorable settlement involving smartphones and tablets.

The NLJ quoted Facebook's VP & deputy general counsel Sam O'Rourke: "I find tremendous benefit from the knowledge [the Cooley team] gained about Facebook and the relationships they've built across the company as a result of all the cases they have handled for us. Most importantly, they win cases."

"I think Cooley understands the client's business better than anyone else," Heidi Keefe told the NLJ in an interview. "We're not just their lawyers, we're their partner in getting them back to the business of making the cool things we all love to play with and use."
