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, Taiwan, 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 and hold several leadership positions in notable legal organizations including Co-Chair of the American Bar Association’s 2016 Annual Meeting, Board Member of Lambda Legal, the Bar Association of San Francisco Justice and Diversity Center, and Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Silicon Valley. Our lawyers also frequently serve as panelists at seminars and conferences around the world and have lectured and taught courses at Bay Area law schools, including Stanford University and University of California, Berkeley.
