Haeggquist & Eck has acquired The Cooper Law Firm, an employee and consumer class action firm based in Irvine. The acquisition follows the appointment of Cooper Law Firm managing partner Scott Cooper, who founded the firm in 1999, to the Orange County Superior Court bench.
The remainder of the Cooper Law Firm team will work alongside HAE to represent consumers and employees in complex class actions throughout Southern California and the nation. The move brings two new employees – attorney Samantha Smith and paralegal Andrea Drocco – to the HAE fold, and allows Haeggquist & Eck to have a physical presence in the greater Orange County and Los Angeles areas.
“At Haeggquist & Eck, we’re proud to be Southern California’s employee and consumer rights advocates – lawyers who are committed to our clients, our community, and social justice,” said HAE managing partner Alreen Haeggquist. “When the opportunity to work with Scott Cooper and his talented team arose, we moved quickly. Our partnership will multiply our reach and allow us to better serve employees and consumers across San Diego, Orange, and Los Angeles counties.”
The firm’s physical office will remain in its current location at 4000 Barranca Parkway, Suite #250, in Irvine, and will be in addition to HAE’s current space in downtown San Diego.
