Daily Journal Names Firm Among Top 10 in Silicon Valley

April 3, 2012

WilmerHale’s Palo Alto office has been ranked as one of the Top 10 Largest Silicon Valley Law Firms in 2012 by the Daily Journal. These rankings are based on the number of attorneys working out of the firm’s Palo Alto office.

Since its opening in 2005, the office has grown to more than 50 attorneys in a wide range of practice areas including intellectual property litigation, patent prosecution, corporate, securities, technology licensing and fund formation. The office is built upon the firm’s guiding principles and is parallel with the needs of Silicon Valley’s most prominent technology companies, ranging from Fortune 50 corporations to venture-backed start-up companies.

“We are proud of the team we have built in Palo Alto, and we expect continued growth in the coming years,” said Mark Selwyn, partner-in-charge of the Palo Alto office. “We are very honored to represent some of Silicon Valley’s most innovative and exciting companies.”

The Palo Alto office focuses on several practice areas that are core strengths of the firm, such as corporate finance and M&A; intellectual property litigation, counseling and transactions; patent prosecution; securities enforcement and litigation; cross-border transactions and litigation; and government investigations and white collar criminal litigation. The firm has been able to better serve the clients who are based on the West Coast and, more specifically, in Silicon Valley—the largest technology, life sciences, and venture capital market in the world.
