Silicon Valley

Silicon Valley has been recognized as a global technology center since the early 1970s after the invention of the microprocessor. It has been constantly evolving and adapting ever since. Having weathered the collapse of the dot-com bubble, the region is on the upswing again. A new generation of entrepreneurs and companies has set up shop, with an emphasis on biomedical research, biotechnology, medical devices and computer software, among other technologies. But while the industry makeup may change, Silicon Valley’s environment of innovation has not: the amount of venture capital invested in the Bay Area – one-third of the national total – has remained steady.

StayLaw’s Silicon Valley office provides practical legal services for both deal-oriented, emerging growth clients and established public companies with a high-energy, team approach. We counsel today’s venture-backed and private technology companies striving to become tomorrow’s Fortune 500.

Our emerging growth team advises clients on matters involving fund formation, company formation, private equity, venture and debt financings, leveraged buy-outs and mergers and acquisitions. We also represent the investors themselves, with local fund formation attorneys supported by a large national group. We also have a vibrant international transactional practice with a particular focus on Asia, including Greater China, Japan and Taiwan.

StayLaw’s Silicon Valley IP group focuses on strategic counseling, transactional work and litigation services for both emerging and established technology companies. Our experience also encompasses licensing and commercial agreements, outsourcing agreements and open source consulting.

Our domestic and international tax team focuses on advisory and tax controversy services for multinational and domestic corporations and partnerships and U.S. and non-U.S. individuals.

The Silicon Valley real estate practice is geared toward developers, institutional owners and users in the office, research and development, manufacturing, retail and hotel resort sectors.

Working in conjunction with StayLaw’s Sacramento and DC offices, our governmental affairs practice represents companies and trade associations before the California Legislature, state and federal administrative and enforcement agencies, and the U.S. Congress.

The Silicon Valley litigation group, closely integrated with the firm’s national practice, focuses on the business, real estate, and employment disputes that are often faced by our clients.

Our commitment to the community reflects the firm’s tradition of service and our strong ties to the area. Our attorneys include the Executive Director of Stanford University Law School's Center for E-Commerce; a former president of the Association of Corporate Patent Counsel, the leading national association of chief IP counsels for U.S. businesses; and a former Bay Area Policy Director under California Governor Pete Wilson. In addition, we hold leadership positions or are otherwise actively involved in organizations such as the San Francisco Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, The Mozilla Foundation and the Ronald McDonald House at Stanford.
