Cooley expands to become rising name in Washington DC

Silicon Valley-based 700-lawyer firm Cooley is taking on 54 lawyers from Dow Lohnes to become a Top 30 Washington firm.

Washington expansion for Cooley Eurobanks

Dow Lohnes has been in talks with a string of firms over the summer, having lost about half of its lawyers since 2010. Excluded from the merger deal are the 12 lawyers in the Dow Lohnes office in Atlanta. Cooley is well known for its IT company practice. Cooley opened in Washington only eight years ago while Dow Lohnes has 95 years of experience in the Washington area, specialising in communications and working for the Federal Communications Commission, according to the Washington Post.
