Look no further than the UCSF campus at Mission Bay to see San Francisco’s focus on innovation. Whether biotechnology or high technology, our services and experience are contributing to the future of the Bay Area.
In tandem with our Silicon Valley office, we have a deep bench of resources helping businesses emerging on the scene as they form, fund, patent and grow.
We offer unusual strength in providing labor and employment legal counsel. Given the complexity and uniqueness of California labor and employment law, we have built an experienced team that supports companies already here and those considering expansion into the state. We counsel on current and anticipated workforce issues with an emphasis on assuring clients are ahead of regulations and benefits innovations.
With clients operating in financial services, insurance, consumer products, health care, pharmaceuticals or transportation, our litigation and trial experience across a diversity of industries is vast. As product class actions or high profile accident investigations increase, our teams serve as lead counsel for disputes and jury trials in state and federal courts and on appellate matters.
Our San Francisco office was first among law firms in the U.S. to pursue and secure LEED® certification by the U.S. Green Building Council and is a model for sustainable design and green building practices. We are resolute in our commitment to a diverse workforce, community volunteerism and pro bono legal service.
