American Lawyer Honors Cooley in Litigation Department of Year Contest

January 3, 2018

Palo Alto – January 3, 2018 – The American Lawyer has recognized Cooley’s exceptional litigation work as an honorable mention in its biennial Litigation Department of the Year contest.

“Cooley’s push to be the top firm at the intersection of law and technology is paying off,” says the American Lawyer profile, which cites that the firm has “beaten back privacy class actions against clients Facebook and Sony Computer Entertainment and saved Google’s $113 billion trademark on the company name.” The publication also notes that, in the past two years, Cooley has successfully resolved a multitude of significant antitrust, IP and recovery cases, including a big win for CenturyLink.

“We’re proud that The American Lawyer has recognized our litigation momentum,” said Mike Attanasio, chair of Cooley’s global litigation department. “Our team is unyielding in its commitment to providing the best results for our clients around the globe. This accolade reflects the consistent, high-impact results we achieve together.”

Publications consistently recognize Cooley’s litigation strength. This year, BTI Consulting Group named Cooley a Litigation Powerhouse in five categories and The Lawyer again recognized Cooley’s litigation growth and outstanding advocacy in its annual Global Litigation 50 report. Law360 has heralded Cooley as a “go-to” firm for its litigation work, ranking it among the elite US law firms on its Litigation Powerhouse list.
