London – June 18, 2018 – A judging panel at the Transatlantic Legal Awards has named Cooley its Capital Markets Team of the Year. The annual awards ceremony, which highlights cross-border law firm accomplishments, is jointly hosted by Legal Week, The American Lawyer and Corporate Counsel.
“We continue to solidify our status as a dominant leader in capital markets and public offerings across the US, including special experience in cross-border capital markets transactions,” said Justin Stock, Cooley’s UK managing partner. “It is affirming to have Cooley’s capital markets achievements, led in London by partner Ed Lukins, recognized in this way.”
“It’s a privilege to partner with companies and their investment banks who lead the charge in growth and innovation,” said David Peinsipp, who, alongside Charlie Kim, co-chairs Cooley’s global capital markets practice group.
“This recognition is a reflection of the powerful team dynamics at Cooley. Every day we work as a team across offices and geographies to provide the best results for our clients,” Kim added. “This deep commitment to collaboration is the reason why we have had so much cross-border success.”
The Transatlantic Legal Awards recognize law firms for excellence in handling transatlantic matters across the key areas of corporate, finance and disputes, as well as highlighting in-house leaders and law firm innovation, commitment to pro bono and outstanding transatlantic strategy.
Cooley’s London office has built out robust practices, including corporate/M&A, finance, venture capital & private equity, capital markets, technology transactions, insurance, litigation, IP, product compliance & liability, white collar crime, tax, employment, competition and privacy & data protection, among others. In less than three years, the UK office has grown by more than 50% in headcount. In December, Cooley was named London Office of the Year at the British Legal Awards for the second time since launch. The firm is also shortlisted for International Firm of the Year at The Lawyer Awards.
