Our San Diego office offers legal services for every phase of a company’s growth cycle. We represent a diverse group of private and public companies in virtually every area of the region’s economy, including biotechnology, clean technology, computer hardware and software, medical technology, semiconductors and telecommunications.

Our corporate lawyers advise investors, venture and private equity funds, emerging companies, public companies, boards of directors and financial intermediaries on securities and corporate finance matters.

Many of our San Diego IP lawyers are among the pioneers in the biotech and life sciences field. In large measure, due to their continuing contribution, we are, according to Chambers Global “famed for [our] outstanding knowledge of biotech and life sciences,” and “Now firmly established as ‘a front runner for global IP work,’” according to Chambers Global USA 2009 and “consistently rated as ‘excellent’ or ‘very high quality’ by clients” according to Legal 500 US 2009. Our patent lawyers provide prosecution and counseling advice to inventors, investors, and technology-based companies.

Our industry experience encompasses biotechnology, chemistry, clean technology, electromechanical, electronics, life sciences, medical device, nanotechnology, pharmaceuticals, semiconductor and software technologies.

Our litigation work includes the full range of complex commercial litigation and appellate representation; however, in San Diego, our litigators focus particularly on IP litigation, including patent and trade secret litigation for technology clients; products liability litigation for clients in the aviation, pharmaceutical and consumer products industries; and litigation involving real estate, consumer class actions, Section 17200, professional liability, partnership and shareholder disputes.
