Baker & McKenzie has been a key advisor to San Francisco Bay Area businesses since opening in 1970. Our offices in San Francisco and Silicon Valley grew alongside technology industry clients as they expanded locally and globally, and today we represent a who’s who of established and emerging Bay Area-headquartered companies.

We work with our colleagues around the globe to advise clients in areas such as international trade, corporate compliance and investigations, international tax, global equity services, M&A, corporate reorganizations and integrations, employment, immigration and dispute resolution.

Our Bay Area lawyers are as dynamic and innovative as our clients and bring deep industry experience in advising them on critical domestic and international issues. Our global perspective, collaborative culture, commercial pragmatism and innovative thinking help us provide clients with a real business advantage.
