Vinson & Elkins’ San Francisco office focuses on bet-the-company litigation disputes and investigations in the areas of government investigations, antitrust, securities, complex commercial litigation, environmental, complex product liability, class actions, and intellectual property litigation. Our San Francisco office is one of the most dynamic and growing in the Bay Area, and our lawyers represent clients based in Northern California, particularly in the tech space.
In addition, the San Francisco office is critical to V&E’s ability
to effectively represent global clients doing business in the United States, as
well as U.S. clients doing business abroad. The San Francisco team has
extensive experience in Asia, with a particular emphasis on Japan, China, and
Korea, as well as the Middle East and Europe.
Whether it is a DOJ or SEC investigation, a major securities
or product class action, or a patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or
ITC dispute, V&E’s San Francisco lawyers tirelessly advocate on behalf of
our clients, having the experience to obtain the best result for our clients.
Our lawyers are routinely recognized as being among the leaders of the bar in
their respective fields and by leading publications such as Chambers, Legal 500 U.S., BTI Litigation
Outlook, and The Best Lawyers in America.
A hallmark of the San Francisco-based lawyers is their experience
in the courtroom and in front of various agencies such as the SEC and DOJ. The
partners have a wealth of trial experience and are well known in California
appellate, federal district, and state courts, as well as around the country,
including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Most of our
lawyers have national and international practices and work closely with our
V&E offices around the globe to provide the most practical, efficient, and
effective advocacy on behalf of our clients regardless of the nature of the
problem or dispute.
Our lawyers are deeply involved in the community and the
bar. One of our partners will co-chair the American Bar Association’s
Litigation Section conference in 2016. Our lawyers have been on the boards of
the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area, on the board of the
Federal Bar Association, appointed to the judicial review committee of the Bar
Association of San Francisco, named a director of the Legal Aid Society of San
Mateo County, and served on the board of a major San Francisco modern dance
company. Our lawyers frequently lecture and have taught courses at Bay Area law
schools, including Stanford University, University of California, Berkeley Boalt
Hall, and Golden Gate University.
