Meeting the needs of a diverse business community, our attorneys assist clients in real estate, affordable housing, business litigation, banking and lending, insurance, aviation, product liability, and labor and employment issues. In tandem with our Silicon Valley office, we work with clients in technology, venture capital, emerging business, and intellectual property, both nationally and internationally.
The San Francisco attorneys have aided hundreds of pro bono clients through our participation in Legal Services for Children and the Legal Aid Society on asylum, domestic violence, guardianship, and employment matters. Associates regularly serve the community as deputy district attorneys in the Marin County District Attorney’s Office.
Our San Francisco office was first among law firms to be LEED® certified by the U.S. Green Building Council, and is a model for sustainable design and green building practices.
