Coffey Joins McCarter & English Law Firm

Jul 24 2013 | 9:18am ET

James F. Coffey has joined the Boston office of law firm McCarter & English as a partner in the corporate, securities and financial institutions practice.

Coffey, who will concentrate on the expansion of McCarter’s emerging companies capabilities, has extensive experience providing strategic counsel to companies in critical phases of transition, including start-ups or early-stage development companies seeking angel funding as well as fully mature businesses seeking insight on exit strategies.

“Jim’s welcome decision to join us will help validate the outstanding synergies between our corporate emerging companies’ capabilities and our preeminent intellectual property attorneys, particularly in their life sciences representation,” said Howard Kailes, practice group leader of McCarter’s corporate, securities and financial institutions practice. “Our emerging companies practice has developed as a wonderful complement to our long-standing activity in venture capital and private equity, mergers and acquisitions, debt finance and securities law matters.” 

Coffey, an active member of the Boston-based angel investor group Boston Harbor Angels, joins McCarter after the recent additions in June of international finance partner David L. Woronov to the Boston office and private equity authority Joseph W. Bartlett to the New York office.
