Cooley Named to National Law Journal's "IP Hot List"
Palo Alto, Calif. – May 7, 2013 – Cooley LLP announced today that it has been named to the National Law Journal's "Intellectual Property Hot List." The list, which is in its second year, identifies firms that have demonstrated creative, formidable talent in IP litigation, patent prosecution and deal-making. Cooley made the inaugural list in 2012.
"Intellectual property is so much at the core of what we do for our clients -- from patent filings, to technology transactions, to the courtroom, where intellectual property is often the focus of bet-the-company litigation," said Jim Brogan, chair of Cooley's Intellectual Property practice. "It is an honor to be included on the Hot List for the second consecutive time, and it really validates the caliber and breadth of our IP practice and the depth of trust that our clients place in us to handle their most complex and challenging matters."
Among the notable work cited by the National Law Journal was Cooley's representation of Facebook in its highly publicized patent dispute with Yahoo! which resulted in a successful resolution and partnership; Cooley's successful representation of Gevo in its ongoing patent dispute with Butamax Advanced Biofuels, and the significant win Cooley achieved on behalf of Qualcomm in an infringement suit with Gabriel Technologies.
Cooley's Intellectual Property group, which works with clients ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, excels at delivering sophisticated legal strategies in IP-related engagements, including patent, copyright, trademark, false advertising, licensing, ITC Section 337 and trade secret matters.
