Cooley LLP hired Danish Hamid, a partner at Winston & Strawn LLP, as the Washington-based firm of more than 650 lawyers expands its global reach.
Hamid, 36, who was in Winston’s Washington office, has experience in international business transactions and compliance matters, Cooley said in a statement. He will join Cooley as a partner and will advise clients on U.S. domestic and cross-border matters.
“His arrival could not be more timely as Cooley increases its international focus to address our clients’ increasing global business needs,” Chief Executive Officer Joe Conroy said in the statement.
Cooley, which operates nine offices across the U.S., opened one in Shanghai in December 2011. The firm was ranked the 57th-highest-grossing law firm in 2010 by the American Lawyer, a trade magazine, with more than $517 million in revenue.
