In 1959, Cooley formed the first institutional venture capital limited partnership in the western United States: Draper, Gaither and Anderson. Built upon five decades of experience, our venture capital practice has the client volume, market presence, expertise and breadth of experience that make Cooley one of the foremost authorities on venture capital fund formation.
Our Venture Capital group was specifically organized to provide sophisticated counsel to venture capital and other private equity funds in connection with their fundraising, governance and investment activities.
As a natural extension of these relationships, Cooley is established as a leader in representing both emerging growth companies and venture capital funds in venture capital financings.
Cooley's venture capital practice was recognized by The Recorder as the "Top Venture Capital Practice" in California. Read here.
