Olswang and Cooley in transatlantic alliance

UK firm Olswang has announced a non-exclusive alliance with US law firm Cooley, with plans to boost referrals between the two firms. Olswang previously established links with the US market via a relationship Greenberg Traurig, but that relationship has wound down since Greenberg’s launch in London in June 2009. Olswang chief executive David Stewart said: "We have significant sector overlap and strong service line synergies. Both firms are keen to pursue this relationship given the increasing globalisation of the business of our respective clients, and the increasing importance of technology and intellectual property to global businesses of all types." A Cooley spokesperson said: "Cooley is pleased to have established a relationship with Olswang, which is based on our complimentary practices and our shared commitment to serving the needs of innovative and growing businesses in an increasingly global economy."
