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.

The August issue highlights the US Supreme Court decision in US v. Clarke that addresses setting a standard for improper challenges to summonses. Other features focus on recent developments in Chinese international tax law, details on the FATCA requirements that recently took effect, and an update on Deleware unclaimed property.
The December issue focuses on the Supreme Court's decision in United States v. Woods, IRS Guidance on the Sourcing of Income and Withholding on Distributors' Earnings in Mulit-Level Marketing Arrangements, and the new IRS Notice on FATCA Compliance.
In this issue we discuss a Supreme Court decision that redefined how general jurisdictions are established for foreign corporations. We also highlight key verdicts that may impact arbitration proceedings, as well as other notable matters in international litigation. Stay updated on significant verdicts that may affect your business.
