David PeinsippCooley LLP

A dominant player in life sciences and technology, Cooley LLP’s industry sweet spots serendipitously aligned with the IPO market’s most lucrative sectors during 2018, which saw the firm attract a string of quality instructions in some of the year’s most high-profile equity offerings. The group secured several heavyweight issuer-side mandates but also continues to build up its manager expertise. Among the names to note, San Francisco-based global capital markets co-head David Peinsipp is highlighted as ‘really driving the market’; he acted with Palo Alto’s Eric Jensen to assist DocuSign with its $723.7m IPO. In another highlight, San Francisco-based public companies co-chair Chadwick Mills advised Seattle Genetics on its $690m public offering. Other recent issuer clients include Autolus Therapeutics, Snap and Stitch Fix. On the manager front, it advised the underwriters on a $258.7m public offering by Ascendis Pharma — San Diego-based global department co-chair Charlie Kim, San Francisco-based Jonie Kondracki and New York-based Div Gupta co-led that work.
