Located in a landmark building in the heart of the city, Venable's San Francisco office supports the firm’s commitment to our clients, our profession, and our local community.
Venable entered the San Francisco market in 2013, starting out in a small space near the Ferry Building with just three partners. It has since grown into a full-service office with the addition of an international tax group in 2015, an environmental group in 2017, and the significant expansion of our tax and wealth planning, intellectual property, and litigation practices along the way. The office is now home to skilled attorneys handling litigation, transactions, intellectual property, real estate, regulatory, tax and wealth planning, and other legal matters for clients with interests across the globe.
Our commitment to the region is also evident through the generous work of the Venable Foundation, which provides significant contributions to local organizations that support refugees and immigrants, address food insecurity, help remove disparities in education, and provide pro bono legal aid.
Today, we serve clients across a range of industries, including consumer product goods, life sciences, technology, media and entertainment, financial services, and real estate. Whether our clients are forming or operating their business, leveraging intellectual property, transacting in real estate, litigating disputes, or adapting to new regulations or legislation at any level of government, our Bay Area attorneys can provide the practical and actionable answers needed to succeed.
Capitalizing on our strong, nationally recognized government practices, Venable brings an in-depth understanding of the federal government to the region’s clients experiencing increased scrutiny in Washington, DC. Our privacy and advocacy practice plays a major role in the development of internet law and policy, and our advertising and marketing practice is at the forefront of shaping legislation, regulation, and policies that govern advertising and marketing. We are also at the forefront in supporting the creation and adoption of new technologies, be they artificial intelligence or autonomous vehicles.
By working cohesively as a group, and partnering with talented attorneys across our firm, our widely respected team serves the full range of clients’ needs.
