Cooley Tapped To Represent Grindr In $2.1 Billion SPAC Deal

Dating app Grindr has tapped global law firm Cooley as its legal counsel as it goes public via a $2.1 billion acquisition by a blank-cheque company based in Singapore.

SPACS raise funds through initial public offerings (IPOs) to take private companies public. 

According to a statement by Cooley, the team representing Grindr is led by San Francisco-based M&A partners Jamie Leigh and Garth Osterman, and corporate partners Dave Peinsipp and Kristin VanderPas. Hong Kong-based corporate partner Will Cai will also assist with the deal. 

The global law firm has represented Grindr in the past. In a 2015 case that was dismissed the following year, the firm defended Grindr against claims it violated California state law by failing to make users aware of membership cancellation policies.
