Cooley announced the growth of their global tax practice with the addition of partner Alexander Lee in Los Angeles. Lee joins from McDermott Will & Emery.

Cooley global business department chair Mike Lincoln said, “Alexander’s deep knowledge of international transactional tax work further strengthens Cooley’s offerings for established industry giants and disruptive startups alike. Alexander has the wealth of experience needed to meet increasingly complex tax demands on large, cross-border deals.”

Lee will focus his efforts on national and global transactional tax matters such as public and private mergers and acquisitions, lending, finance and capital markets. He has expertise in leading cross-border transactions and corporate transactions with Asia-based companies and managing global companies and startups with corporate and tax matters.

Lee said, “Cooley is among the leading firms in the world when it comes to high-profile transactions with complex tax implications. I am eager to pair this know-how with the firm’s uniquely collaborative culture to help deliver success for our clients in California and around the world.”

Lee earned his J.D. from UCLA School of Law. Before joining McDermott, he was a partner at Paul Hastings.
