San Diego – November 1, 2022 – Cooley has moved its San Diego office to begin a new era in a state-of-the-art space in the heart of the city’s life sciences community at The Boardwalk in Torrey Pines. The move to 10265 Science Center Drive aligns with the firm’s focus on designing workspaces that deploy next-generation technology to foster collaboration and enhance the overall client experience.
“When we first opened in San Diego, we were the only Silicon Valley law firm in the area,” said Michael Attanasio, chair of Cooley’s global litigation department. “Our substantial growth has paved the way to this next era at The Boardwalk. Our new office’s prime location further solidifies the firm’s commitment to our innovative and industry-leading clients in the dynamic San Diego market, where our people will continue to thrive as we build on our contributions to the community over the last three decades.”
Cooley occupies one of three buildings at The Boardwalk. At 74,000 square feet, the stand-alone building has two floors – and features an open-concept layout with a cafe and outdoor workspace for more than 200 employees. The Boardwalk’s campus offers a range of amenities, including a restaurant, a conference center, an indoor and outdoor fitness center, and a one-acre park with outdoor meeting and collaboration spaces.
Launched in 1992, Cooley’s San Diego office has been a key driver of the firm’s national and international growth, taking clients’ businesses on a full-service journey through their life cycle while protecting and defending them against bet-the-company litigation. The office is home to firm leaders for life sciences, business litigation, capital markets, compensation & benefits, mergers & acquisitions, real estate finance, securities litigation, and white collar defense & investigations – emblematic of the firm’s focus on the region and the needs of the local ecosystem. The team has worked with many of the area’s most innovative and high-growth companies, from their formation to going public and beyond.
