San Francisco, the picturesque "City by the Bay," has long been known as home to major corporations and international financial institutions, and gateway to the Pacific Rim. In the past two decades, the Bay Area, including the nearby "Silicon Valley" cities of San Jose and Palo Alto, has emerged as a global leader in the high-technology and new media industries. In recent years, San Francisco has taken advantage of these assets to become an important biotechnology and research center.
Similarly, Epstein Becker Green's San Francisco office has built on the firm's prestigious reputation and extensive resources to provide regional clients, as well as national clients with business interests on the West Coast, a broad spectrum of legal services to meet their ever-evolving needs. Working closely with its sister office in Los Angeles, and drawing on the capabilities of the firm's seven other offices across the country, our San Francisco office provides Epstein Becker Green's regional and multi-sited clients with both the prompt, personal service they would expect only from a small firm and the level of experience and talent that is typically the domain of a national practice.
Our San Francisco attorneys advise and represent Fortune 500 and other companies in the firm's national practice areas: Labor and Employment, Health Care and Life Sciences, Corporate Services, Litigation and Employee Benefits. Clients in such diverse industries as health care, high-technology, and finance also rely on members of our San Francisco office for their extensive experience in such specialty practice areas as ERISA, immigration, antitrust, trade secrets, and securities law.
Our San Francisco attorneys are sought-after lecturers and prolific authors. They also are actively involved in the community, from serving as a member of a government task force on medical group solvency to serving on the boards of business, civic, and philanthropic organizations, including the Fort Mason Foundation, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, the Family Service Agency of San Francisco, and the Advisory Council of the San Francisco Salvation Army.
Our attorneys' knowledge of, and involvement in, California and the Bay Area community enhances their ability to anticipate legal and business trends of particular importance to regional clients. The San Francisco office also regularly holds briefings to apprise clients of significant developments in the law and to provide them with the opportunity to meet informally with our attorneys and discuss their concerns.
