Silicon Valley is inextricably linked to the emergence of the high-tech industry in the United States and the dramatic expansion of this exciting sector worldwide.

Our lawyers help Silicon Valley trendsetters – and cutting-edge innovators everywhere – navigate the increasingly complex intellectual property issues that arise in this highly competitive industry through comprehensive IP protection, litigation, and dispute resolution advice. Our attorneys have substantial experience in reviewing, drafting, negotiating and structuring domestic and international licensing arrangements for a wide and diverse range of clients.
