Cooley has hired Jeremy Naylor as a partner in its tax practice to focus on assisting the Palo Alto-headquartered law firm’s venture capital clients with tax issues.
Naylor is joining the firm from White & Case, where he predominantly worked with private equity, real estate, venture capital and hedge funds.
Naylor will be based in Cooley’s New York office alongside Mike Faber, who was recently hired for an identical role at the firm.
Head of Cooley’s venture capital practice Craig Dauchy said, “Recently, our venture capital group has been involved more frequently with structurally complex international funds that raise intricate tax issues.
“Jeremy has the international tax background to assist these clients in designing the most tax efficient structures for their funds.
“We are well acquainted with Jeremy’s work and reputation and are very excited to augment our fund formation team with his exceptional tax skills.”
