"Authentic Big Law" – Can we practice law at the very highest levels, while also in a personal, caring and team-focused way that rejects discrimination and self-promotion at the cost of others, and truly reflects the ideals we hold onto so dearly outside of work? We here at Team Cooley answer that question with a resounding "yes!"
Charlie Kim skillfully navigating your capital markets transactions - priceless.
