Our location in the Bay Area has many advantages, but perhaps none so exciting as being in the heart of a robust tech community and our proximity to Silicon Valley. We work with many of the nation’s leading high-tech firms to provide counsel that’s as innovative as they are.

    Over the years, our lawyers have developed a deep understanding of all aspects of the technology industry and we’re able to offer our clients sophisticated and agile representation in a broad range of matters, including corporate finance, technology licensing, intellectual property litigation, tax, and intellectual property protection. We often act as outside general counsel, offering companies a comprehensive and astute approach on everything from entity formation and founders agreements to complex commercial contracts and mergers and acquisitions.

    We represent tech companies in a variety of industries, including software, pharmaceutical, medical device, semiconductor, Internet, and social media.

    Areas of particular experience:

    • Technology licensing, including patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret licenses
    • Mergers and acquisitions
    • Joint ventures and strategic alliances
    • Multi-party agreements, including consulting and service, research and development, manufacturing and supply, marketing and promotions, material transfer, SaaS/hosted services, and OEM
