Pitchbook Confirms Cooley’s 2019 VC Leadership

Palo Alto – February 18, 2020 – Pitchbook ranked Cooley the #1 most active global law firm for VC deals in all healthcare and pharma-related categories and the second most active for VC transactions in the US and globally in its 2019 Global League Tables, a comprehensive ranking of private equity and venture capital activity worldwide. Cooley advised on nearly 1,000 VC financings last year. 

The rankings underscore Cooley’s continued market leadership in venture capital across life sciences and various industry sectors. The continued momentum contributed to the firm’s distinction as a Law360 Practice Group of the Year for technology, as well as The Recorder’s Tech Deal Department of the Year and Startup Firm/Emerging Company Law Firm of the Year recognitions. Additionally, Cooley won four key LMG Life Sciences awards and Chambers USA designated Cooley’s life sciences practice with nationwide and California band 1 rankings. 

Cooley works with 6,000+ innovative, high-growth private company clients, from pre-formation founder teams to many of the largest and most sophisticated companies in the world, including 40% of the US-based unicorns. One of the hallmarks of Cooley's commitment to innovation is Cooley GO, a free resource designed to help entrepreneurs grow their business with easy-to-navigate information and document generators.
