London – November 17, 2015 – Cooley continues its UK growth with the arrival of Natasha Kaye, a leading London-based tax practitioner. Natasha resigned from Olswang in April of this year and started at Cooley on November 16. Cooley will further enhance its corporate capabilities when Stephen Rosen, who resigned from Olswang in January, joins the London office of Cooley upon expiration of his notice period.
"We've been eagerly looking forward to Natasha's arrival," said Justin Stock, managing partner of Cooley's London office. "Her deep knowledge of complex corporate tax work will prove valuable to our burgeoning corporate practices."
Kaye has a broad corporate tax advisory and transactional practice advising on UK and international direct and indirect tax issues in relation to corporate, real estate, outsourcing and IP transactions and planning. She has a particular focus on private equity transactions working for both institutions and management teams, as well as advising more generally on M&A, reorganizations, joint ventures and corporate restructurings.
"It's great to get started at Cooley," said Natasha Kaye. "I've been looking forward to this for some time and am keen to bring my corporate tax experience to support the growth and momentum of Cooley in London and globally."
Kaye is a member of the LexisPSL Tax Consulting Editorial Board and the Stamp Taxes Practitioners Group. Kaye earned her LLB with honors from the University of Leeds and her LLM in tax from the University of London, Queen Mary & Westfield College.
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 and recognized practitioners across key areas, including corporate/M&A, complex litigation, venture capital, technology transactions, IP, tax, competition and privacy. Since its opening in January, in addition to adding Stephen Rosen and Natasha Kaye from Olswang, Cooley arrivals to the London office include life sciences partners John Wilkinson and Nicola Maguire from Reed Smith, patent practitioners David Wraige, Jacqueline Moore and Daniel Sellwood from Mintz Levin and a transactional team from Wilmer Hale, including compensation and benefits partner Paula Holland and corporate associates Tamsin Crane and Ciaran Rooney.
