December 1, 2020

Palo Alto – December 1, 2020 – Law360 has recognized Cooley as one of its Cybersecurity + Privacy Practice Groups of the Year for the seventh time.

Law360’s Practice Group of the Year awards honor the law firms behind the major deals and litigation wins that resonated throughout the legal industry in the past year. The winning firms rose to the top of more than 775 submissions.

“Over the past dozen years, we have built a truly elite global practice that spans all aspects of cybersecurity, data use, privacy and related high-profile litigation and regulatory engagements,” said Michael Rhodes, global chair of Cooley's cyber/data/privacy and internet practice groups. “I’m incredibly proud of our team for this distinction and grateful to our clients for entrusting us to protect their innovation.”

Cooley’s global cyber/data/privacy practice consists of 50+ lawyers focusing on all aspects of privacy, cybersecurity and data governance. The group represents industry leaders, executives and boards of directors whose innovative technologies and business models often raise novel legal issues in the area of privacy and data security and which, in some instances, challenge the fundamental definition of data protection and privacy in the age of information, interconnectedness and social media. The team has twice earned Privacy Litigation Department of the Year by The Recorder, among other distinctions.
