Palo Alto

V&E serves clients located in Silicon Valley through our Palo Alto office, and its deep bench of lawyers who have decades of experience practicing in this technology hotbed. Our lawyers have significant knowledge and strength in virtually every sector doing business in the Valley, including consumer and enterprise software, Internet and e-commerce, computers and other electronics, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biotechnology, clean energy, and industrial manufacturing.

Beyond providing expertise in complex litigation and investigations in the areas of intellectual property, white collar, antitrust, securities, product liability and environmental law, we serve as a trusted advisor to Silicon Valley’s entrepreneurs and investors, as well as the area’s well-established high-profile companies, partnering with each of them in their drive for innovation and excellence.  Our broad legal experience and interdisciplinary approach enable us to anticipate our clients' needs and identify and resolve the issues critical to the matter at hand. Clients look to V&E for guidance on the most challenging aspects of their business and we understand that knowing the law is not enough — we strive to know a client’s business, industry, and goals. Whether our client is a young or mature company in an established or emerging industry, we roll up our sleeves and collaborate with clients to design custom-tailored solutions for their strategic success.

Our intellectual property lawyers are leaders in patent, copyright, trademark and trade secrets disputes, and hold technical degrees across the spectrum of technology fields, including computer science, electrical and industrial engineering, and chemical and biological sciences.  We represent clients in federal and state courts around the nation and before the International Trade Commission, as well as litigate post-grant review proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.  We have successfully tried some of the most notable bet-the-company patent litigation and other complex technology litigation disputes, and have been recognized in the IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners.  

Our Palo Alto attorneys also work with colleagues throughout the firm to represent clients with respect to antitrust issues, international arbitrations, tax, finance, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, joint ventures, development projects, and other transactions. 

V&E’s Palo Alto office is an integral part of the Firm’s Asia-Pacific practice, and represents numerous clients throughout Asia, in Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and China, in particular.  Many of our attorneys are fluent in Mandarin, Korean and Japanese.

We are proud to be active participants in the local legal community and work alongside several notable organizations, including the Silicon Valley Intellectual Property Law Association, Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Silicon Valley, and The Honorable William A. Ingram American Inn of Court, in their missions to educate and foster communication among peer groups, as well as aid underserved populations.  Our attorneys also love to share their knowledge and experience with those coming up in the law field, and do so by mentoring students from local universities, including Santa Clara University School of Law and Stanford Law School.
