In October, 2015 Baker Botts announced the opening of its 15th office in San Francisco, CA.
This new office enhances the global reach of the firm’s market leading practices and will be located in the heart of city’s Financial District.San Francisco has traditionally been viewed as the region’s financial and cultural center, as well as a gateway to Asia, but increasingly it has become a destination for both established and start-up technology companies. The new San Francisco office is a natural strategic development for the firm given the depth and breadth of our practices in the technology sector.
Baker Botts' San Francisco office will draw upon the firm’s reputation for outstanding client service and firm wide expertise in areas such as technology, corporate, patent litigation, real estate, life sciences and white collar to add significant value for our clients.
This will mark the second California office for Baker Botts. The Palo Alto office, which the firm opened in 2008, has since grown to over 30 lawyers. The San Francisco and Palo Alto offices will be highly integrated and will maintain the high level of professional excellence and client service that has been a hallmark of Baker Botts for 175 years.
Baker Botts has a well-earned reputation as a leader in patent prosecution and litigation in California and around the world. The new San Francisco office and the firm’s expansion in California continues to demonstrate Baker Botts’ commitment to being a world-class technology law firm.
