Cooley raids former ally in London
Cooley has hired away private equity partner Stephen Rosen from Olswang, the firm's former alliance partner. Rosen has been with Olswang since 2000 and has been a partner there for 13 years. Prior to that, he spent seven years at Berwin Leighton Paisner.
Cooley opened an office in London by assimilating office space and several partners from Edwards Wildman when it merged earlier this year with Locke Lord. Cooley eventually put in place a team of 50 lawyers at its new London office.
The alliance between Cooley and Olswang was almost five years ago and lasted only 18 months.
