Cooley advised Lightspeed China Partners on the closing of its fourth family of venture capital funds, with total commitments of $560 million, including Lightspeed China Partners IV at $360 million and Lightspeed China Partners Select I at $200 million.

With strong backgrounds in company operations and entrepreneurship, the partners of LCP are committed to helping a new generation of Chinese entrepreneurs become industry leaders, build world-class companies and create social impact.
