India Business Law Journal named Ferish Patel to its 2021 International A-List, which features the top India-focused lawyers at international law firms.
Patel is the partner in charge of Cooley's Singapore office, where he also heads the office's corporate practice. For nearly 18 years, he has advised clients across the full spectrum of corporate matters, including private financings of all stages, IPOs, mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance matters. Patel has also assisted clients in raising more than $150 billion in public and private financings involving equity and debt capital. He has worked on several transformative deals that have earned Cooley accolades, particularly in India, Singapore and broader Southeast Asia. These distinctions have included multiple Deals of the Year as part of India Business Law Journal's annual awards; a leading practice group distinction in Legal 500 Asia Pacific's 2021 rankings; and a Band 1 distinction for startups & emerging companies in Singapore in Chambers Asia Pacific 2021 rankings – a status earned less than one year after Cooley's office there opened. Patel was also given a Band 1 ranking for Singapore.
