A Law Firm for the Future
As advisers to disrupters – particularly in the technology, life sciences and high-growth industries – we see firsthand the power of innovation. As a result, we invest significant time and resources in implementing and developing the tools, systems and infrastructure necessary to dramatically transform the client experience.
We think beyond the limits of technology to encompass leading-edge processes and individual talents for a unique blend that benefits our professionals, our clients and our communities.
We strive to create an inclusive and rewarding environment that allows our people to thrive both professionally and personally.
We are proud Fortune heralds us as one of the greatest places to work.
Cooley is a business that has a culture of doing things right, together. And in so many ways, it’s like a family. We spend a lot of time together – an incredible amount. Legal outcomes can take years to achieve. We have come to understand that part of our success lies in how we make the journey and look out for one another along the way. We share a vision of success, believe fiercely in our core values, and we support one another as we strive to live up to them. We are devoted to continually advancing our standing as one of the world’s greatest law firms, and we believe part of that is achieved when we live up to the promise of making our firm a great place to work. It is an irreducible part of what makes us Cooley.
The more we have invested in making Cooley a diverse, inclusive and great place to work, the better the firm has performed financially. Last year, we recorded the highest revenue and net income results in our firm’s history. Our revenue is nearly double the industry average for similarly-sized firms. Clients notice, too: they want to be part of a collegial and successful team that recognizes collective effort and prioritizes shared goals. Cooley’s clients want to make an impact and, in turn, make the world a better place. So do we.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
We believe our success is based on a diversity of people, teams and opinions.
True commitment to workplace diversity means offering all employees the tools, training and mentoring they need to succeed. It means embracing the importance of diversity on our client teams. It enables every individual to balance work and family obligations. It is about fostering community involvement and participation in local and national diversity initiatives. It means leading by example in our profession. Cooley is an equal opportunity employer.
Diversity is embedded in Cooley’s culture. We are dedicated to maintaining a truly diverse workplace that values and celebrates differences.
Our commitment includes active and creative partnerships with clients and in local and national minority law organizations, diversity pipeline projects, law school diversity programs and community outreach.
True workplace diversity means offering all employees the tools, training and mentoring they need to succeed. It means embracing the importance of diversity on our client teams.

Our Fight for Racial Justice
We recognize that we all share a responsibility to effect change in our fight for racial justice. We commit to publicly sharing and maintaining accountability for Cooley’s progress and to work toward systemic change within the firm, the broader industry and our communities.
Cooley is committed to taking a comprehensive approach in working toward building a firm and workplace that reflects equality for all. From professional development to external partnerships, accountability for progress has been integrated into every step of our employee and client experience, and we commit to working across the firm to build strategies that move us forward on this journey. Our actions have accelerated in recent months led by our CEO and chairman, Joe Conroy.
