The WILEF Tribune Interviews Joe Conroy

The WILEF Tribune
January 25, 2017

Empowering women in law is not just a women’s issue, it’s a priority for leaders throughout the legal sector. In the XY Factor, WILEF talks to men about diversity and inclusion, and the women who have influenced their careers.

Few law firms have matched the financial performance of Palo Alto-based Cooley in recent years. After double-digit revenue growth in 2014, the firm followed up with enviable numbers again in 2015, posting a 21 percent increase in net profit and a 14 percent increase in revenues, according to figures from The American Lawyer.

Steering the firm since 2008 has been CEO Joe Conroy, who has successfully led the firm’s foray into key markets, notably London in 2015. Last year, Conroy was chosen as “Transatlantic Law Firm Leader of the Year” by The American Lawyer.

Conroy recently spoke to The WILEF Tribune about the firm’s approach to promoting women, which he sees as vital to Cooley’s success.
