Finance and tax specialist joins Cooley


William Corcoran has joined Cooley's tax practice as the first tax partner in its Boston office.

Celebrating 10 years since the firm launched in the city, Corcoran's arrival follows that of partner Ryan Sansom who joined in March. 

Corcoran has a lot of experience in private equity and venture finance tax matters. He advises on the federal and state income tax consequences of corporate and partnership mergers and divisions and represents leveraged buyout, venture capital, mezzanine and other alternative investment vehicles on formation and investment issues. 

Before joining Cooley, Corcoran was a partner at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt for 12 years. He previously worked at Goodwin, Wilmer and was a partner at Testa.
