Beijing – August 13, 2019 – Cooley is a finalist for International Firm of the Year in the healthcare & life sciences, investment funds and private equity & venture capital categories at the China Law & Practice awards. The event, which will take place at The Kerry Hotel in Beijing on September 19, identifies and honors the biggest and most important commercial legal matters involving lawyers and parties in China.
The distinctions complement Cooley’s continued growth in Asia. The firm launched in Hong Kong at the beginning of the year following the success of its Shanghai and Beijing offices, which opened in 2011 and 2018, respectively. Most recently, Cooley announced plans to open an office in Singapore to be led by newly hired corporate partner Ferish Patel, who has initially joined the firm in Hong Kong.
Cooley represents some of Asia’s most innovative and dynamic technology and life sciences companies, advising on financings, corporate partnering and licensing, M&A, joint venture, capital markets and other strategic transactions. In addition, the firm has helped more than 80 fund managers in Asia form 100+ venture capital and private equity funds. Cooley was named Investment Funds International Firm of the Year at the China Law & Practice Awards last year and has been broadly recognized for its powerhouse technology, life sciences and venture capital practices.
