Sidley hires transactions partner from Cooley
Sidley Austin has boosted its New York technology transactions practice with the hire of partner Jennifer B. Coplan from Cooley.
Coplan’s practice concentrates on intellectual property, assisting information technology firms with transactions, including cross-border and domestic technology development, licensing, and outsourcing. She also advises companies on the legal aspects of establishing Internet-based businesses, including licensing, protecting, and enforcing copyright, along with trade secret and patent issues.
Michael J. Schmidtberger, managing partner of Sidley’s New York office, said: “Adding Jennifer to our team is a natural next step in the expansion of our global Technology Transactions practice and is a wonderful complement to our growing M&A and corporate practices in New York.”
