King & Spalding’s Silicon Valley office boasts a team of lawyers steeped in the region’s unique culture of innovation. Our attorneys have been involved at the early stages in the development of some of the largest and most successful companies in the Valley. With this expertise, and leveraging King & Spalding’s global platform, we help life sciences and technology clients wisely manage every aspect of their growth.
Named a leading U.S. firm for Life Sciences by Legal 500, we offer life sciences and healthcare companies focused advice at every stage of the product life cycle—from intellectual property counseling to capital raising to FDA approvals to licensing and commercial partnerships. Likewise, we help all of our technology clients manage risk and achieve growth via early-to-late-stage capital raising, M&A and joint ventures, public offerings, SPAC transactions, corporate governance, human capital and employee incentives, and for licensing and other commercial agreements.
Our IP litigation practice is home to proven first-chair trial and business lawyers with a passion for winning lawsuits and who have been recognized for their accomplishments in the courtroom. They are at-home in some of the busiest venues for patent litigation in the country, including Eastern and Western Districts of Texas, District of Delaware, Northern and Central Districts of California, the ITC, and the PTAB.
Our appellate practice is sought out for its strategic advice and counseling, persuasively written briefs, and superior oral advocacy skills. It excels in handling difficult, groundbreaking cases in which the stakes are high, the legal questions are untested, and innovative thinking is required, especially in Rule 23(f) class certification appeals on behalf of our class action defense clients.
