Cities - San Francisco Universal

Vinson & Elkins’ San Francisco office focuses on bet-the-company litigation disputes and investigations in the areas of internal investigations, government investigations, antitrust, securities, complex commercial litigation, environmental, complex product liability, intellectual property and class action litigation. Our San Francisco office is one of the most dynamic and growing in the Bay Area, and our lawyers represent clients in all industries, including tech, biotech, banking, and manufacturing.

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 and China, as well as Latin America, the Middle East and Europe.

Whether it is a whistleblower allegation, internal investigation, an investigation involving the Department of Justice or the Securities & Exchange Commission, a major securities or product class action, 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.  One of our lawyers has extensive in-house experience as the Chief Compliance Officer at several of Silicon Valley’s leading companies. 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 San Francisco lawyers are deeply involved in the community and the bar and hold leadership positions in notable legal organizations. 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.
