Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Palo Alto is home to innovative start-ups, global technology companies, and leading venture capital firms alike. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati was founded in Palo Alto in 1961. Although we have grown alongside the Valley from a small operation to a well-known international firm, we continue to take pride in our Silicon Valley roots and the strong, long-lasting relationships we have established in the local community. This unique location gives attorneys at the firm's headquarters unparalleled access to the region's top technology, life sciences, and growth-stage companies, as well as the thriving local venture capital and private equity firms that support them.

Our Palo Alto office offers clients a full range of legal services, including assistance with the formation of technology and growth start-ups; the negotiation of venture capital financing; representation in initial public offerings and secondary offerings; counseling on challenging corporate and governance issues; the negotiation of complex technology and business transactions, strategic alliances, and joint ventures; representation in mergers and acquisitions; protection of intellectual property; and representation in antitrust, securities, employment, and intellectual property litigation.

The office serves clients in all technology, life sciences, and growth industries, including communications and networking, computer hardware and software, information services, media and entertainment, consumer products and retail, life sciences, semiconductors, and financial services.

Through the seamless integration of all Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati offices, we leverage the institutional experience and resources of the entire firm to provide high-quality services to clients.
