In 2003, James Cooper was profiled in Legal Times‘ sister publication, The American Lawyer, as one of 11 stellar federal prosecutors across the country who made up “a shopping list for recruiting partners.” Well, Arnold & Porter went shopping, and Cooper will be leaving the local U.S. Attorney’s Office in May to become a partner and litigator on white-collar and government investigations. Cooper prosecuted violent crimes in the mid-1990s, then moved to the Justice Department in 1997 as a trial attorney on white-collar cases before returning to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, where he was promoted to deputy chief of the Criminal Division. “Arnold & Porter is a wonderful Washington institution,” Cooper says. “It is a place where I found I fit and click comfortably and culturally.”
