About Cooley: Working at Cooley provides an opportunity for collaboration, challenge and reward. We are all part of one firm dedicated to maintaining a diverse workplace that values and celebrates differences. It is the unique abilities and perspectives of every individual at Cooley that creates a rewarding workplace, and a key part of what makes us Cooley. Our people-first culture philosophy and firmwide commitment to inclusion and wellness is central to our success and the driving forces behind our global growth. Our cooperative spirit is the trademark of the Cooley culture and every employee in every department is instrumental to the success of the firm. Cooley is 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.

Our 1100+ lawyers are organized into two departments—Business and Litigation—which are further organized into practice groups. Given our uncompromising commitment to the quality of work that we produce, remaining on, if not defining, the leading edge of the law in a business and legal environment that is evolving daily, and working efficiently and cost-effectively, we are intently focused on enabling our practitioners and practice groups to the greatest extent possible. One of the ways that we provide such support is by augmenting selected practice groups with a resource attorney whose overarching responsibility is to enable our practicing attorneys to be more informed and efficient. This attorney will not work directly with firm clients and therefore will not bill time.

  • Collecting and providing information to the Marketing department to assist that team with responses to RFPs and other opportunities for business development
  • Coordinating with Professional Development to ensure and enhance the skills development of members of the Public Companies practice group
  • Coordinating with Information Services to assess available technologies and to develop new solutions that can be used to leverage efficiencies within the practice group, as well as the delivery of services by the Public Companies practice group

Skills & Experience:
A resource attorney must be a licensed attorney with significant prior experience in the Public Company practice area they will support.
