Having risen more than 100 spots in Am Law’s annual firm ranking over the past six years, Polsinelli opened its San Francisco office as part of an ongoing goal to provide the firm’s national and California-based clients with a legal platform that best serves their interests. Our San Francisco office has brought together vibrant, local diverse lawyers committed to serving our client’s needs in Northern California.
Representing prominent national and regional clients, Polsinelli’s San Francisco attorneys are focused primarily in intellectual property, management side labor and employment and healthcare. Providing support for clients' complex national intellectual property matters, we integrate the experience of prosecution attorneys who navigate the complexities of securing intellectual property with the experience of litigators who understand the process of defending and challenging intellectual property. Our labor and employment attorneys have tried employment, wage and hour, and class action cases and are experienced in every facet of litigation from California State Courts through the United States Supreme Court. San Francisco’s healthcare attorneys defend their clients in complex commercial disputes with particular emphasis in the healthcare, health tech and technology and telecommunications industries.
With a strong reputation for the defense of major industrial companies and in addition to being heavy advocates for their clients’ position in court, our San Francisco attorneys also focus on our clients’ business performance, partnering across the firm’s national financial services and corporate practices which provide legal counsel in approximately 100 service areas and 70 industries.
Working closely with colleagues in Los Angeles and Polsinelli’s additional offices across the country, these San Francisco attorneys serve to expand the services and geographic reach we provide to our clients in a thriving and critical region.
