"With this move to the Warner Building, Cooley gains an office identity that reflects our strong Washington, DC presence and accommodates our future growth plans," said Ryan Naftulin, partner-in-charge of the Washington, DC office and vice chair of the firm's business department. "Both geographically and architecturally this stunning new space supports the firm's leading practices."
Over the past two years, the number of attorneys in Cooley's Washington, DC office has grown by 50%. More than 80 lawyers are resident in Cooley's new Washington, DC office space as of the date of the move.
