Nixon Peabody’s Silicon Valley office provides a foothold in one of the world’s most dynamic business and entrepreneurial environments. We assist emerging growth companies from incorporation through initial public offering or acquisition, and public companies on corporate and securities needs. As part of our nationally ranked practice serving venture capital investors, the Silicon Valley attorneys counsel firms on fund formation and management, portfolio company investments, board of directors and executive compensation issues, portfolio review, intellectual property audits, and representation.
In addition to our dedication to clients, our pro bono and community commitment runs deep. For example, we teamed up with client Intel’s in-house counsel to help secure guardianship of a 13-year old whose father was murdered. In another matter, through the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, we secured safe asylum for a Mongolian woman escaping years of violent domestic abuse.
