January 15, 2021

Palo Alto – January 15, 2021 – The American Lawyer honored Cooley with its Technology/Telecommunications Corporate Practice of the Year distinction at the publication’s annual Industry Awards, which recognize the industry’s most impressive law firms and lawyers.

“Cooley burnished its reputation as a close ally to the tech industry,” wrote The American Lawyer, “advising on work as varied as Uber’s $8 billion IPO and Tableau’s $15.7 billion sale to Salesforce, among many notable industry-changing deals.”

“Our longstanding reputation in the tech industry is not one we take for granted, and we are grateful to receive recognition for it,” said Kathy Pakenham, chair of Cooley’s global business department. “It’s an honor to represent industry disruptors and established powerhouses changing the world through their innovation – we share these successes with them.”

Cooley has deep roots advising novel technology companies. The firm represents 6,000+ high-growth clients, from pre-formation founder teams to many of the most sophisticated tech companies in the world. Last year, Law360 named Cooley one of its Technology Practice Groups of the Year for advising clients on some of the highest-profile corporate transactions and complex litigation matters in 2019.
