Palo Alto

Our Palo Alto office has been a major contributor to the emergence of the Silicon Valley business community over the past two decades.

A cornerstone of our Palo Alto practice is the comprehensive service we offer to venture and private equity investors and to emerging companies, particularly those that are technology-based. Our work for companies spans the entire development cycle, from the organization and initial financing of private startups, through subsequent equity and debt financing rounds, to liquidity events such as mergers, joint ventures, and public offerings.

Our core competencies line up precisely with the region’s economic focus. MoFo patent lawyers provide prosecution and counseling advice to inventors, investors and companies developing and using biotechnology, life sciences, pharmaceuticals, medical device, clean technology, chemistry, nanotechnology, electronic, semiconductor, electromechanical, and software technologies.
