Baker Botts originally opened its Palo Alto office in 2008 to be closer to our existing clients in the Silicon Valley. Since that time, the office has grown from four lawyers to more than twenty, and the list of clients served primarily or substantially out of our Palo Alto office includes Facebook, Atmel Semiconductor, Cisco, AT&T and many more.

Our Palo Alto-based lawyers work with clients in the telecommunications, software, computer and electronics, semiconductor, medical device, pharmaceutical and clean energy industries, to name a few. In addition to a robust and nationally-recognized patent litigation practice, our lawyers provide counsel on a broad array of technology matters, including complex patent, trade secret, copyright and trademark infringement litigation, patent prosecution and portfolio management, technology and software licensing and IP aspects of corporate transactions. Our lawyers represent Fortune 50 companies, small start-ups and individuals on virtually all aspects of IP protection, licensing, monetization, risk analysis and dispute resolution, including litigation in federal and state courts throughout the country.

The office maintains a broad-based corporate practice, with securities offerings, mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital investments experience. We pride ourselves on the team approach we bring to every engagement, and we believe our collaborative approach improves the results we earn for our clients.
