Womble Carlyle attorney Jim Cooley has been named to a select national list of attorneys for dedicated client leadership and intimately knowledgeable service.

Cooley is a 2017 member of the BTI Client Service All-Stars. Only 319 attorneys across the country were selected for this year’s team.

Cooley leads Womble Carlyle’s 40-lawyer Financial Services Litigation Team. He was the Practice Group Leader of the Firm’s 90-lawyer Business Litigation Practice Group from 1996-1998 and again from 2006-2012. Resolving complex business disputes has been the focus of Jim's practice since joining Womble Carlyle in 1985. In addition to his many years of litigation experience, including over 50 jury trials, Cooley brings a keen understanding of alternate dispute resolution techniques to his clients’ problems.

“Client service must be a habit, that which we as legal professionals repeatedly do every day,” Cooley said. “And it is always a team effort. Individual honors are nice, but there is no “I” in “TEAM.” This award is solely the result of excellence on the part of Womble Carlyle’s Financial Services Litigation Team.”

BTI’s analysis for the BTI Client Service All-Stars 2017 draws on candid feedback from corporate counsel at the world’s largest organizations. BTI asks General Counsel and their direct reports to delineate, unprompted, the attorneys who drive superior client relationships. Inclusion in this exclusive report is driven solely by direct feedback from corporate counsel. Law firms and their attorneys have no influence on these rankings.
