Cooley Partner Tanisha James Named M&A/Antitrust Trailblazer

James has advised on the antitrust aspects of some of the world’s most complex domestic and international transactions and investigations. Her significant work has contributed to the expansion of Cooley’s antitrust presence on the East Coast and in the New York market, including advising as lead antitrust counsel on’s $1.2 billion sale to Siris Capital Group, Livestream’s sale to Vimeo and Shipt’s $550 million all-cash sale to Target.

Reflecting on the opportunity to work with change-makers in technology and innovation, James says “they are changing consumer habits, which is changing the way regulators approach enforcement and how we give advice. This innovation will continue past the golden age we are in now. It is great to have a front-row seat and look for new ways to help clients think about antitrust and how it affects their go-to-market strategies.”

James is a proven leader inside and outside the firm, serving communities as a legal and civil volunteer and advocating for the underserved and underrepresented.
