Cooley Godward Snaps Up Heller Ehrman Refugees in Seattle

Xconomy Seattle — 

Cooley Godward Kronish, a national law firm, is opening an office in Seattle five years after it left the region in the wake of the dot-com bust. The new Cooley office will have four partners it has picked up after Heller Ehrman recently closed its doors, and will be led by corporate partner John Robertson, the firm said in a statement. He will be joined by Sonya Erickson, who was co-chair of Heller’s national life sciences practice, and intellectual property partners Alison Freeman-Gleason and Kevin Kelly.
