Cooley Culture is more than just a catchphrase. It is the way we value our lawyers by overall contribution to the Firm, not by billable hours. It is the way we encourage a cooperative spirit and teamwork approach. It is the way we consider our commitment to community as one of our highest priorities. It is the way we recognize that our people are our greatest asset.
Representing clients in more than 20 industries from offices in 11 major commercial markets, we are counselors, strategists and advocates for the foremost private and public companies. With 650 attorneys throughout the U.S and in China, Cooley is as equally adept at representing two-person start-ups as it is Fortune 500 companies.
